A dark color variant of L. mexicanus - Lexiphanes mexicanus - female

A dark color variant of L. mexicanus - Lexiphanes mexicanus - Female
Patagonia, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
August 1, 2016
Size: 2.6 mm
From a series I collected by sweeping roadside vegetation. Species determination by E. G. Riley. Ed told me that the females have a distinct depression in the middle of the last ventrite (males have a simple last ventrite). So I would say this is a female.
