Atranus pubescens - male

Atranus pubescens - Male
Passage Creek, Shenandoah County, Virginia, USA
October 7, 2015
Size: 6.3mm
Collected by sifting flood debris among reeds on a sandy island in the creek.

I do realize what a horrible image this is, compared to Jeff's.

I've collected many of this species by sifting debris along small streams at low elevations. In January last year I found one under a large log in a rocky forest on top of a high ridge, far from water. In April, one flew onto me at dusk in a wooded campsite.
