Harmostes sp (possibly H. fraterculus)` - Harmostes angustatus

Harmostes sp (possibly H. fraterculus)` - Harmostes angustatus
San Felipe Valley Preserve--BLM, San Diego County, California, USA
March 18, 1999
Size: BL about 7 mm
We found this pale Rhopalid on Narrowleaf Goldenbush (Ericameria linearifolia) in spring at about 2200 feet elevation. It seems different from my Harmostes sp and Arhyssus sp.

We checked out our bug at the CU Museum and have identified it as Aufeius impressicollis, which is closely related to Harmostes with the spiny fore femurs, but in Aufeius the abdomen extends beyond the wings. Another detail we noted: the white veins on the corium are sprinkled with black dots.

Harmostes angustatus
See guide page for justification. I think the scutellar "tongue" is prominent enough to move these images here.

Moved from Harmostes.

 
Harmostes angustatus
Thanks so much for this update. It really does resemble the other H angustatus pictured in BugGuide. Your help is much appreciated!
