Cymindis limbata
Brad or anyone, could we get a nice habitus shot of the very close Cymindis platicollis? Equally common with similar range, C. platicollis is most easily distinguished by lack of humeral (shoulder) pale spots. "Cymindis platicollis" does not currently appear on BG, but those Apr-27-2005 and Mar-25-2006 specimens by Tom Murray (MA) could certainly pass for it.

Have not seen it
I haven't seen C. platicollis. If I do I'll post it.

And thanks for the informative comments about the species I have been posting. They are quite helpful.
