Stenolophus ochropezus
is really high up on the list if you were able to observe the characteristic iridescence atop the elytra. These high resolution images provide sharp expandability which make them most telling of the species. I feel this set could easily be placed on the front page of the species folder when the anticipated restructuring occurs for BugGuide 2.0.

 
By the way...
Do you know when the restricted BugGuide 2.0 is coming?
Thanks so much, Gary

 
meant to say,
restructured, not restricted.

 
Okay.
In my opinion your magnificent image should be assigned species "index" in BugGuide 2.0.

 
Nope.
Ditto for anyone else you ask except perhaps for our benevolent leader.

PWM note: I recommend the term "index specimen" for the best species example in any given insect collection. By analogy, the term "index photo" is the best graphic representation in a given set of images such as the one archived by BugGuide.

 
Sorry...
didn't mean to pry. But I'll be excited to see it when it materializes..and thanks again for the info...

 
Thank you for the compliment.
And I appreciate the help...
