BugGuide images "...identified as lividus all need to be scrutinized. For the thousands of Labarrus I've seen from the US, I'd say less than 50 are true lividus. There are some subtle leg characters I've recognized beyond the tibial spur character, but genital characters are definitive." ―Paul E. Skelley, pers.comm. to =v= 25.viii.2023
