Moved from Arawana arizonica.

Moved from Chilocorinae.

Take a look at Arawana scapularis
I have not seen a specimen of this species, and the real appearance of said species eludes me, but it is known in the area.

 
PS.
"Arawana" scapularis does seem to be its own taxon, whether it still goes by that name or "Exochomus" scapularis. It is not a real synonym of arizonica it seems, at least I don't see any source that calls it as such. I think Gordon's label was in error, but if he did not know of scapularis during writing I'm not sure how this happened.
