Martinapis occidentalis - male

Martinapis occidentalis - Male
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, San Diego County, California, USA
March 14, 2006
Size: BL ~ 13 mm
This Martinapis occidentalis male was caught by a crab spider on Desert Sunflower (Geraea canescens) in the low sandy desert along Henderson Canyon Road. Note the very long yellow antenna camouflaged along the flower petal, characteristic of this genus/species. We collected the specimen when the spider was finished with its meal.

Identified by Doug Yanega.
