ex. ground-level Flight Intercept Trap (FIT), set in cedar elm forest: IV-7-IX-12-2009

spmn in the TAMUIC

matches surprisingly well...
...a genus not yet known to occur north of Mexico -- but none of its described member spp.
neat... in any case, certainly not a Cryphula or any other lethaeine recorded in the US, to the best of my knowledge

Moved from Cryphula.

must be a species that we don't have in the guide yet
looks pretty distinctive

Moved from Lygaeoidea.
