Saint-Hyacinthe, Montérégie County, Quebec, Canada

Size: 4.5 mm
Two specimens observed on basswood. I think it might be Blepharidopterus sp. but not B. provancheri which has a thicker first antennal segment. Maybe B. angulatus ?

Blepharidopterus Blepharidopterus

Moved from Blepharidopterus.

I think it is safer to move the picture to the tribe level. M.D. Schwartz wrote « Not Blepharidopterus angulatus, B. chlorionis, B. diaphanus, B. dubius, B. provancheri. Not Paraproba capitata, P. cincta, P. hamata, P. crotonica, P. hamata, P. mexicana, P. pendula, P. viridipennis ».

Paraproba cincta
I believe this might be the same species I saw. It was identified as Paraproba cincta. See
