Deltochilum gibbosum - male

Deltochilum gibbosum - Male
Parkwood, Durham, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
July 5, 2004
Came to porch light at about 5:00 a.m. 6/30/04, almost landing on photographer's bare leg, giving him a bit of a start. Captured, chilled, and posed, then released. You can see the resemblance to the related, more widespread, Canthon in this photo.
(Image updated 2017 with a more dorsal view of same specimen. I have not observed this species again as of August 2018.)
