Kuschelina petaurista ? - Kuschelina petaurista
3.5mi E of Olney on US 50E, Richland County, Illinois, USA
June 18, 2010
Size: 7.8mm
Roadside net sweep. Of the 30 species in the U.S., 16 are treated in (1).
Knowing that genitalia must be observed, I nonetheless picked K. petaurista from the 16
available. Eleven were eliminated by size. Three others due to pronotal LxW ratios, vent
color, and comparative lengths of antennomere 3 & 4. Eliminated K. rhabota as it does not
have submarginal vittae. The remaining choices on the guide pages were X'ed based on
color. Comments most welcome. Will be happy w/Genera. Thanks
