Sosylus extensus

Sosylus extensus
Leesburg, Lee County, Georgia, USA
May 24, 2011
Size: 4.7mm
Collected at lighted sheet. Keyed using (1), pg 13. This is
definitely not S. costatus, as the carinae are different. According to the
key, the interspaces are impunctate and have 2 very fine, flat carinae instead
of the punctation seen on S. dentiger. Hope the 2 carina are visible in the
photo and maybe Mike Thomas can chime in. If correct, would need a guide page.
I also think this is the same species Jamie Garrison submitted a short while
back under .
