Moved from Collops.


Thank you V..
Could this be Collops limbellus? It can be distinguished from the similarly colored C. flavicinctus by the black erect hairs on the elyta which are pale in C. flavicinctus, per Adriean Mayor(1).

Yes Collops limbellus
Yes Collops limbellus

thank you for your input Mr. Fox...

I'll move tenitively,
to C. limbellus. If someone figures this is not correct we can always move it back. With no objections of course.
