Scarites quadriceps Chaudoir - Scarites quadriceps

July 29, 2004
Size: ABL ~28.5 mm; LE ~14.7 mm
leg. Ron King; specimen from Jordan D. Marché II; det/@ PW Messer 2014. This rough yet instructive image was taken with a basic Kodak camera in autofocus held over ocular lens of stereomicroscope.

Scartes quadriceps differs from nearly identical S. vicinus by its larger size, longer metasternum (here LMs/LMc ~1.33), and geographic range limited to southeastern USA. Anatomic details are presented in a species key to North American Scarites.

Instructive photos
Thanks for these excellent photos Peter. It makes me feel more confident in a determination of Scarites vicinus I had made in the past. Hope you keep adding photos of these "less-seen" specimens!
