inclusion into publication
Dear John,

I am preparing a taxonomic revision of the Xyela styrax-group. Could you please kindly e-mail me the full-size images of this specimen - and provide me your agreement for reproduction in course of our publication? Your photos possibly are the only images of an alive specimen of this troop, which is characterized by bright wing veins and the shape of the ovipositor sheath tip.

Best wishes,


This is a species of the styr
This is a species of the styrax-group of Xyela. Quite rare in comparison with other species of Xyela in eastern US.
