Somerville, Morgan County, Alabama, USA

1st data point for Alabama in the guide.

This is definitely Pachydesmu
This is definitely Pachydesmus crassicutis. Please notice the color and texture/glossyness differences with the apheloriinine you thought might be such a few days ago Jackson

Yes I know, that's why I posted it in the Pachydesmus crassicutis species page. I was already pretty confident of the species ID, and posted it primarily since it was the first BugGuide data point for Alabama.

I think you might have the wrong person though, as I haven't posted any Apheloriini in recent memory, from Jackson or anywhere else. Although I hope to one day.

But I do appreciate the confirmation for this P. crassicutis - always good to have an expert confirm an ID.
