Thanks!!

Stereopalpus female
I have a stout unplaced female from Loma Linda in front of me, and I have convinced myself finally that this is the best placement forr the photographed specimen. It is not a Retocomus, the only other real possibility with this form. A maxillary palpus can't be seen unfortunately, which would be most helpful.
