Dendroides canadensis - female

Dendroides canadensis - Female
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
July 21, 2008
Came to the light at night. This appears to be a female Dendroides canadensis but I do not know what other species might be in NJ. I would guess somewhere around 10 mm maybe a little bigger.

Moved from Dendroides.

Very nice!
We can't help except to say it looks like the images in the guide, but wanted to say how nice this was.

Thank You!
I figure with 4 species still not represented, and totally unknown to me, I wanted to play it safe. I have a book "Report of the New Jersey State Museum-Insects-1909" showing Dendroides canadensis in north jersey, but I know some of the others here have more recent books!

D. canadensis
according to Downie and Arnett (more recent, but prone to some minor errors), the only bi-colored species in the northeast is D. canadensis. (I'd believe D&A in this case)

wonderful images!

For the confirmation and compliment
