Is T. nubifer anywhere near this colorful?
I can't tell from Rick's sepia-toned images.

Genus is more speciose in Mexico but peters out in Central America. The only thing I can collect in Ecuador are species of Pseudotelegeusis: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36494393@N00/12778542564/

 
Hi Jim,
sorry I can't help you, but I can say you're shooting some very nice hi-res pix.

 
Ivie says the pseudos are very speciose with small ranges,
probably due to having flightless females that can't travel far. The two I've collected are very likely nov. sp. for that reason.
