Airaphilus sp. - Airaphilus near-elongatus

This is the same species that Eric Moody posted.


Moved from Airaphilus.

Eric Moody's original photos of this species,
below, first published on Bug Guide for a new record in the Western Hemisphere at least, very possibly a totally unknown, undescribed species. He sent specimen to Michael C. Thomas for examination, of which the above is a photo taken by Thomas. (Thomas is sending images to the reigning world authority on Silvaninae for confirmation on status.)
