This seems to match the Doru genus in the Guide but I'm not sure about distribution as all the other photos were taken in the South/Southeast.

Moved from Doru.

very nice indeed -- thanks!
acc'g to (1) (p.187), Doru taeniatum (Dohrn), very similar to the 'common' eastern D. aculeatum (Scudder), lives along the Atl.Coast and west to AZ & CA

....interesting about the two similar species. Glad I found this one.

I have a question about your photos I would like to ask privately. Could you please drop me a word to vmarfus on gmail? Thanks in advance, =v=
