Ptilodactyla carinata - male

Ptilodactyla carinata - Male
Horticulture Park, West Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA
June 29, 2008
Size: 4.5 mm
Ex Lindgren funnel trap.

This male had its genitalia partially everted after collection so I went ahead and pulled it out to make a species ID.

This species was not listed by Johnson & Freytag as occurring in Indiana, but its occurrence here is not surprising given the apparent widespread distribution of this species.
