“Chalcodermus” semicostatus Schaeffer - Chalcodermus semicostatus “Chalcodermus” semicostatus Schaeffer - Chalcodermus semicostatus

ID
Rhyssomatus semicostatus (Schaeffer) This species has been placed in Chalcodermus, but Ed Riley told me recently that it belongs in Rhyssomatus, and he is correct. Use of my specimens by me confirms his ID.It has more the appearance of the former but the tarsal claws are toothed as in the latter genus.
