So this is P. bicolor
since we only have one sp. in the US? Or does Sascha think that it is a different sp?

 
probably new!
I wrote Konstantinov and he said, "There are 2 species of Phydanis described so far. One, Ph. nigriventris from Mexico, is here in the collection and it looks nothing like yours. Also Ph. bicolor type (MCZ) looks nothing like yours. So, you may have collected an undescribed species."
