Arhyssus

Arhyssus
I-10 R.O.W., 2.5 mi. n. of Ingram, Gillespie County, Texas, USA
May 6, 2011
Arhyssus sp.
Det. M. A. Quinn, 2011

Coll. sweeping roadside flwrs, mostly Salvia farinacea

Match for which was tentatively id'ed as Arhyssus

Moved
Moved from Niesthrini.

that, or Niesthrea

 
Niesthrea is a possibility...
Somewhat similar to Niesthrea sidae - FL, GA, TX


but Niesthrea louisianica doesn't seem to be a good fit:

 
Seems there is a 3rd sp. of Niesthrea similar to N. sidae
The TX record of Niesthrea sidae may represent a 3rd N. Amer. sp. of Niesthrea, but I still think the wing-bud veination and dorsal spot pattern are a better match for the nym tentatively ID'ed as Arhyssus...

 
i'm sure Val can provie some insight

 
Checked w/ Val first. She writes:
"rhopalidae: either Niesthrea louisianica or Arhyssus sp. - I'm leaning towards the latter..."

 
Arhyssus sp.
