Lachesilla nubilis (Aaron) - Lachesilla nubilis - female

Lachesilla nubilis (Aaron) - Lachesilla nubilis - Female
San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, USA
February 25, 2011
Size: 2.8 mm
I went looking for a different Lachesilla at Aquarena Springs but found this one. I was able to see the cleft in the center of the subgenital plate, the "inner sclerotization occupying most of anterior half of plate" and the ovipositor valvulae "short, posteriorly directed ". I wonder if Mockford can confirm from this photo. If not, I can send him this specimen.

ID confirmed
I sent this specimen to Mockford and he says yes it is L. nubilis.

Moved from Lachesilla.
