Tragidion deceptum Swift & Ray - Tragidion deceptum - male

Tragidion deceptum Swift & Ray - Tragidion deceptum - Male
Pridham Canyon, Chiricahua Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
July 22, 1975
PARATYPE
Tragidion
deceptum
Hovore

(I have no idea why Hovore's name is on this paratype...)

Curated in the TAMUIC

Most likely, ...
this was one of Frank's unpublished Cerams - of which there are many more that I am aware of. Swift and Ray (2008), IMHO, were just tying up taxonomic loose ends. Out of respect, I'd like to think, they left Frank's original paratype label in place.

Thanks for posting the data that accompanies the specimen.
