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!
