20160927BOk01 - Acantholomidea porosa

20160927BOk01 - Acantholomidea porosa
San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, USA
September 27, 2016
Size: 5.2 mm
Camirus (?)
Found it on Malvaceae sp.
The color is somewhat highlight by very close flash and by edit. Seen with naked eye is more dull (like in - the flash was more far from the subject and the picture was only cropped)
A try to ID, using the key from (1), lead me to Camirus (but I am not sure if I appreciate right the shape of buccula)
Trying to compare the external scent efferent system of Acantholomidea vs.Camirus fig.2 and fig.5 in (2) I am tempted to say it is more close to Acantholomidea, but my experience is very limited so ...
I'm sorry for to many pics but in this case I don't know which deserve to be kept, especially for the side view.
