Platydema - Platydema teleops - Male
Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA
September 15, 2007
Size: 4 mm
From Lindgren funnel trap.

Platydema excavatum or Platydema teleops. I'm not sure whether the body falls under "narrowly oval" or "broadly oval". I am leaning towards P. teleops (narrowly oval).

prob. Platydema teleops Triplehorn 1965
i agree with Brad and will take my chances with this one

Moved from Platydema.

Compare to
P. excavatum that Kojun IDed by location (it's supposedly the only horned one in AZ) Does that help?
