Pterocheilus - Female
Lockwood Valley Road near Wagonroad Canyon, Ventura County, California, USA
May 19, 2006
Size: ~14mm
Last week (March 5, 2009; since this is an update) I observed a female Pterocheilus sp. excavating her burrow. This sent me back to my earlier photos, & here I'm adding a cropped, and rotated version of the center photo to show the feathery palps more clearly.
