Bob Anderson says: "This is a new Eurhoptus species.
"... There are two described but 5 in the US. In the e. US there are 2 spp., E. pyriformis and a new one, long thought to be E. sordidus (described from central TX); [...] I think E. sordidus is restricted to central TX. A third species occurs in central TX into LA, a fourth in w. TX (Big Bend NP), and a fifth (just collected in extreme so. TX) is a Mexican species at the northern limit of its range."

Moved from Cryptorhynchinae.

Sweet. Is someone working on this group? I.e. Should I be sending it off somewhere?
