Moved from Cercopeus.

ID
Cercopeus new species. This is one of 7 new species that I am describing in a paper with Jan Ciegler and Jennifer Giron on SC Cercopeus soon to be completed and submitted for publication. If the specimen is available and could be loaned to us we could include it as a paratype in our publication, and deposit it in any collection the collector wishes.

 
Cercopeus skelleyi
Based on distribution this is most likely Cercopeus skelleyi which was described from Aiken State Park.
