Confirmed as E. jubata; nice!
Confirmed as E. jubata; nice!. (Efferia prolifica is likely a synonym of this sp. anyway; turns out that it was actually probably described from Cochise Co., Ariz., not "northern Sonora", as it is believed original collector Morrison 'misspoke' when he claimed material was from Mexico. ("Biologia Centrali-Americana", publisher of this Osten Sacken species, only accepted specimens from south of the U.S. border for inclusion in the study; but this area was too dangerous at the time of the 1880's, and collections came from U.S. Army posts of Fort Grant and Fort Huachuca instead - G.H.Horn 1896.)

 
Thanks
Thanks Eric for the det and the interesting tidbit. Must have been crazy being an Entomologist in those times!
