Dicaelus furvus - female

Dicaelus furvus - Female
7 km east of Paw Paw, Morgan County, West Virginia, USA
June 9, 1990
Size: 16 mm
Unbaited pitfall trap in wooded ravine. The long humeral carinae are easy to see. I believe their is a tubercle on the left mandible but you can't see in this photo. I considered trying to relax and spread the mandibles for a better view of the inner edge but this specimen is almost 30 years old and I was worried the mandible would snap off.
