Unknown Heteropteran (2) - Trapezonotus
Canmore Park, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
June 22, 2008
Size: 5 mm

From Merrill Sweet: "Trapezonotus sp. near but not arenarius"

nice to know i was right about genus placement

very nice bug
looks like a charred Trapezonotus to me -- need more time to figure out. 100% new-to-BG

from Dr. Sweet:
"probably Trapezonotus, but I am unfamiliar with such a dark species, like Atrazonotus. Have do more work on it!"

more from Dr. Sweet:
"very unusual; I am unfamiliar with this species. It could be a Delochilocoris, not a Trapezonotus, but I need to see the actual specimen. Would not surprise me if it is a new species."

Tim, how about sending it to the man? along with other funny stuff of yours...

Shoot me an email about details of where to send it, mailing instructions, etc.
