Blaine, you look good on this one:-)

Nudobidius
looks good to me...but Tom's been making me look bad with his staphs lately :-)

We can place this one to cephalus, because of its roughly square head. The other less common species in the NE has the head distinctly longer than wide. I can't wait for that one to turn up.
