Measure the Lateral Carinae - Corythucha morrilli

Measure the Lateral Carinae - Corythucha morrilli
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
April 18, 2015
Size: 2mm Body
These are images of a Morrill Lace Bug on my finger, Corythucha morrilli. The character that defines the difference between this species and the very similar looking C. marmorata is the length and extent of the lateral carinae. In this species, this line extends all the way across the pronotum. This image has a blow up, insert of the pronotum area, with arrows that point at this feature.

Please confirm, move or frass these images. Thanks for your help!

Corythucha morrilli
Though the markings on the wings are quite faded I still believe you have C. morrilli. The character you noted about the lateral carinae is correct. I like that you put arrows on the image, that will be helpful to others.

 
Taxonomic Terminology
Laura, I just read your email message and I'm glad that you also left me a comment here!
Yes, the words are listed on the info page, for both species and there is one reference image, but there should be two, don't you think, haha? Can you please tell me anything about how to sex these or any other kind of Lace Bugs? I'm moving the images now.
Thanks for your help!
