Cuterebra emasculator
Hey Tom, Great find. It is Cuterebra emasculator male. Great find. I would be into having it, if you still have it. Send to Jeff Boettner, ECO Dept, 115 Ag. Eng. Bld., 250 Natural Resources Rd. UMASS-Amherst, Amherst, MA 01003. This is one I am very interested in having samples to compare to the ones from the south. This species uses Tamias striatus, the eastern chipmunk as a host in MA. Great find. Jeff
