Centuriatus auromicans - Augyles auromicans

Centuriatus auromicans - Augyles auromicans
Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA
May 23, 2007
Size: 4 mm
Beautiful golden setae, very different from other heterocerids I've collected. New species for guide.

Collected at UV light.

What's it smell like?
With that name it should be aromatic, shouldn't it?

I dunno
Smells like dead bug to me. :)

nice addition!
agree with v - nice :)

looks like it has a light stripe (in the ground color) down the middle of pronotum? That would sure be different.

UPDATE: Just checked Pacheco's ref. for the species, and near as I can translate it begins with "Body color reddish brown, pronotum with 5 longitudinal light bands, one on each side and a central"

Pronotum has a central light band with the margins pale as well.

very nice addition
