Needs a shave! - Tutelina - Male
Okaloosa County, Florida, USA
June 30, 2011
We found several adult males at the same location as where we found the penultimate male last year. These were also on highbush blueberry or adjacent vegetation. Where the females were is a mystery to us, as despite many hours searching this location, we were unable to locate even one.

Why do you think this might not be elegans?


[Just found answer to my own question in your other posting: After viewing my photos of the adult males from this area, GB Edwards believes that these Okaloosa County Tutelina are the same undescribed species as individuals recently found in Ocala National Forest, Marion County, FL.

The page I made for these undescribed Tutelina is based on GB Edwards' designation for them. He also has specimens from Leon County, FL, and lists them at this time as two other undescribed Tutelina species. We hope to find adult females on future trips to Okaloosa County, so that GB can compare them with the female specimens he has collected from the other locations. I'm sure that he'll publish his analysis of these various undescribed species, once he has the appropriate specimens with which to make a proper diagnosis.
