Proctacanthus
This is one of those Florida Proctacanthus females that I have not been able to sort out. Several of the species are missing from the very old Proctacanthus paper and I don't have descriptions of them. If you shoot enough of them down there maybe we can sort them out.

gracilis MS to NC and FL
heros SE and FL
hinei eastern
longus eastern (but missing from AR for some reason)
