Anotia sp. - Anotia kirkaldyi

Anotia sp. - Anotia kirkaldyi
Perry County, Ohio, USA
July 11, 2007
Size: 3+mm, head to abdomen
Found at night near a light along with other moths. I originally thought it was a strange moth, but apparently it's hemipteran.

Moved from Anotia bonnetii.

Moved from Anotia burnetii.

Moved from Anotia.

Anotia burnetii
The dark wings and dark band across the base of the abdomen are distinctive.

Anotia bonnetii
Oops, sorry! A. burnetii has a mid-dorsal stripe, not a band across the abdomen.

Great work Mike
Now we can compare the two "species" side by side!

Reminds us more of
a derbid in the genus Anotia in the guide here, but Dr Hamilton will know for certain.

I think you're right. I never would have though to look there.
