Calleida decora (Fabricius) - Calleida decora

Calleida decora (Fabricius) - Calleida decora
Camp Maxey, Paris, Lamar County, Texas, USA
August 11, 2010

Moved from punctata or decora.

Image is consistent with either C. decora or C. punctata.
Recall that true "C. punctata" has a southern range potentially to TX (according to catalogue by Bousquet & Larochelle, 1993). Are you comfortable in using location without specimen examination in assigning "C. decora" in this case?

Moved from Calleida decora.

Image is certainly consistent with Calleida decora from a distance. Mike, did you check to make sure this is not similarly colored Calleida punctata, also reported in Texas? See Info page of either species for taxonomic separation.
