Big Prionid - Nothopleurus lobigenis - female

Big Prionid - Nothopleurus lobigenis - Female
Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
July 12, 2008
Size: 2 in
At black light. The site is surrounded by typical Sonoaran desert habitat and some small enclaves of plants from other parts of AZ and Sonora. When this guy showed up I thought it was a Derobrachus hovorei (we got several of those, too) but note the numerous small teeth at the pronotum and serrated Mandibles. Derobrachus hovorei has three to four pronotal teeth and on big one on the mandible.

Mallodon dasytomus.
Not quite as common as Derobrachus. Wait til you see a male!

 
Can' t wait
sexist!

 
I don't believe this is Mallodon
I don't see enough details, but I'd consider Nothopleurus madericus
