Timema 'Cuesta Ridge'...terminalia - Timema - male - female

Timema 'Cuesta Ridge'...terminalia - Timema - Male Female
Cuesta Ridge, San Luis Obispo County, California, USA
April 11, 2015
Detail of terminalia:

Female at lower left...with 10th (terminal) tergite widely pentagonal and apically emarginate; cerci more-or-less parallel-sided and obliquely truncate, with a distinctly gill-like texture on the interior edges;
Male at upper right...with both cerci mildly forked apically; the left cercus narrowed apically, somewhat widened near base on medial edge, with a narrow protuberance at base; right cercus flaring more apically, with a larger, triangular, apico-ventral flange; the ribbon-like intradextral process with a medially-skewed undulation and a fairly transverse-truncate distal edge.
Comparing both male and terminalia here to figures for those of the currently described species...these would appear to be somewhere between californicum and petita/landelsensis...which are also among the geographically most proximate taxa to the location here.
