Polycesta crypta - female

Polycesta crypta - Female
Ash Mountain, Tulare County, California, USA
June 17, 1984
Size: 17 mm
When Barr looked at the black Polycestas from California he found yet another species hiding among the specimens of P. cyanea, hence he named it Polycesta crypta. This can be separated from P. cyanea on the shape of the lateral margins of the pronotum.

Moved from Polycesta.
