Curated specimen from the Essig Museum - Physoconops excisus - Male
Douglas County, Kansas, USA
June 17, 1951
Lateral view.

Note the strong pollinose stripes, both on the mid-pleura...extending from the mid-coxa to the edge of the dorsum...as well as on the front femur and hind coxa. Note also the long, bright yellow puvilli typical of Physoconops.

This is a male...the female in P. excisus has an enormous conical-shaped theca pointing forward off the 5th sternite.
