Do Catorhintha have a range in the PNW? - Darmistus subvittatus
Vashon, King County, Washington, USA
April 24, 2014
I have been over and over this one and it sure as heck seems like Catorhintha is the best match. But, I can't find any data to support a species range in the Pacific Northwest. All visible characteristics certainly seem to point to Coreidae: 4-segmented antennae, ocelli present, many-veined wing membrane, head narrower than pronotum, tarsi 3-segmented, and (as best as I can discern) beak appears to be 4-segmented. Am I getting it totally wrong? Is there an obvious option I've overlooked? Or, is there actually a Catorhintha species with a range in Washington? Somebody, please put me out of my misery as this is making me a wee bit crazy. :) Thanks!
