Dipluran - Evalljapyx hubbardi

Dipluran - Evalljapyx hubbardi
Southwestern Research Station, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
August 7, 2009

Moved tentatively...
...based on the following pers. comm. from M.A. Muegge: "only one genus and one species has been described from AZ and it is Evalljapyx hubbardi. Interestingly, Silvestri redescribed the species after examining the type from Arizona, but renamed it sonoranus. I'm not sure how he could do this based on the Zoological code of nomenclature giving the law of priority. So, I use the 1st described name for the type which was described by Cook in 1899. I have collected in the southeast and south central mountains of AZ and this is the only species I have encountered. However, one can't rule out the possibility this specimen represents an undescribed species"

Moved from Forcepstails.

What size

Almost 1cm?
It was pretty large, I can't remember exactly. It is killing me that I can't find the specimen among my backlog of vials...
