Moved
Moved from Subgenus Pachyconops.

Goes unequivocally to P. floridanus in the key of Camras (1955), and is in relatively good agreement with the description there.

This series is a nice addition to the BugGuide, as it shows all the characters of the species, some of which are not apparent in other current posts...in particular the entirely dark facial grooves in the 4th image of the series. Note also the large black theca of this female. (The theca is anteriorly dark reddish in P. weemsi.)
