looks like
Only three species on record for ND, and these specimens key out pretty nicely to impressifrons so I am moving there.

for all of your great help on these. it has saved me a lot of time on genera I am not familiar with yet.

pleasure is all mine
you contribute quality pictures of rather small animals; i wish you took and submit pictures of some of those you're familiar, too -- traps capture funny things not otherwise available... Hmm! i would like to see a list of your catch... :-]

I will
eventually have a list, I am probably pretty close that I could put an initial one together, as I have to soon for the city folks who funded my work this summer, I will provide it to you soon.

wunderbar -- thanks!
i'm looking forward to going thru the list -- keep posting pics in the meanwhile!
