Moved from Oodes.

Moved
Moved from Oodini.

Oodes

Moved from ID Request.

you mean those sausage-like things? if so, trochanters
they are present in most insects between coxa and femur, but are usually quite small, sometimes barely visible; enlarged out of proportion in this member of the Oodini (Oodes vs Stenocrepis)

 
Let me know
what other characters to look for to help determine whom we see here

 
would be nice to see a head closeup
...focused on the clypeus & labrum (setae pattern important)
