Need expert ID - dwarf Papaipema - Papaipema arctivorens - Male
Whitley County, Indiana, USA
September 10, 2017
Size: TL 12mm, WS 25mm
Found at blacklight/MV.
I couldn't believe it when I saw this one because of the small size. I would guess it is a P. baptisiae or P. arctivorens that didn't have a good food source. I don't know of any species that are usually this small besides maybe P. impecuniosa but it is certainly not that. Suggestions would be appreciated.
