Thanks John and Jane and Patrick.
Patrick, I did not know that there was another Henryetta in Oklahoma, even with another spelling.

reminds us
of in ID Request and in the guide. Maybe Patrick will figure these all out for us.

Perhaps Podabrus
Well, looks like what I think to be Podabrus, close to P. rugosulus, that is what I think Troy saw there--you've got it linked. Now I'm just looking at the picture in Dillon (1), I have not seen the durn things myself! Remember, I've just got a couple of books and an active imagination. I need to get out and hunt for some of these babies myself.

Maybe a real beetle expert, such as Phil Harpootlian, will chime in.

Now what is somewhat ironic is that I was born in Oklahoma City, and my family comes from Ardmore and before that from Henrietta, both of which are down south towards the Texas border, and not in the east, like this Henryetta. At first I thought they were the same place--untill I looked up the latter.
