Gossamer Assasin - Stenolemus lanipes

Gossamer Assasin - Stenolemus lanipes
Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA

Size: ~10mm (body)
Found this fellow on my front porch hunting for small critters. I think it belongs in Genus Stenolemus, but a confirmation would be nice. A very delicate and hairy little creature!

Moved
Moved from Stenolemus. A key covering 3 of 4 species in genus (see genus guide page) plus range statements and description in Slater (1), indicate that all the photos we have to date are of Stenolemus lanipes. Thus I am moving all images assigned at the genus level to the new guide page.

Great images!

 
Thank You!
Your effort and image compliment is greatly appreciated.

You got it.
Your genus ID is correct. Simply stunning images.

 
Thanks Eric!
Appreciate the compliment about the images too :^)
