Belonochilus numenius

Belonochilus numenius
Southwestern Research Station, Chiricahuas, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
March 6, 2018

...if this might actually be Neortholomus nevadensis, a species just added to the Guide.

Moved from True Bugs.


It's not a great match for anything in the Guide, but it's the closest I could get.

I'm thinking...
that these are Belonochilus numenius - there are lots of sycamores here, and there are specimens of the species in the SWRS collection

yep, B. numenius, both cases

That was my first thought...
...but I went through all the images on BG and just couldn't make it fit. In particular, the head of B. numenius seems more elongate than the head of your critter.
