yes this is Lyconotus lateral
yes this is Lyconotus lateralis, but much more black as noted, probably because of its northerly distribution, which in fact exceeds the known range- Maine to Illinois & Missouri to Texas, then down to Vera Cruz, includes Georgia and it gets around ok...

Used to be Lycus lateralis in the subgenus Lyconotus (Green 1949) but Zaragosa-Caballero elevated Lyconotus to genus in 1995

Eisner did the big study on its unpalatability in 2008

thanks again, Joe

very nice, must be it
