Diaditus or ?

Diaditus tejanus Giacchi, adult male. We're finding out this species is much more widely distributed than previously thought. D. pictipes has only been reported from Texas. Blinn (2009) recently reported a species near D. semicolon from Florida and Maryland but these individuals are likely adventive.

Additionally, this is a new state record for this insect and I would be very interested in acquiring some specimens to voucher in the museum if at all possible. They can be fairly common at outdoor lights at night during the summer and fall.

Moved from Diaditus.

I have this one in the freezer, if you want it e-mail me at x_J_C_x at with any info I would need to send it to you.

Moved from Assassin Bugs.
