ID
Ophryastes sulcirostris (Say) If I had known the size I might have gotten this first time. The species is widespread from Alberta in the north to AZ and TX. Great photos. Thanks for the quick response too my earlier ID where I asked for other views to be able to ID the species.This way I did not need to spend as much time getting out the collection and literature. Do incude an estimate of size indicating how much of this is "guestimnate".
