Attalus sp. - Attalus circumscriptus
Scotland Beach, Saint Mary's County, Maryland, USA

Looks like Attalus circumscriptus but I don’t see the “distinct lobe” on front tarsomere 2 mentioned by Evans (1). I’m not sure how important that feature is for the ID; it’s visible in this BugGuide photo but not in others.

Confirmation/correction of the ID would be appreciated. TIA for the help

i suspect that's a male character
Moved tentatively from ID Request.

 
seems reasonable
Thanks, seems like a reasonable assumption. If it saves you some work, I can move my stuff from ID Request to whatever level it's been ID'd to. Seems like if I'm going ask for people's help, the least I can do is the scut work.
