This is one of several Stenopalmatus species that are being studied, but that have had no description officially published, and therefore have no scientific name.

It is probable that more than one species are represented by the photos (tentatively) placed under this heading on BugGuide. Those from northern California are likely represent a distinct species, and there may be more than one species represented from southern California.
