Mulsanteus - Diplostethus texanus - male

Mulsanteus - Diplostethus texanus - Male
Garfield County, Oklahoma, USA
July 10, 2007
Size: 20 mm

Moved from Brown Wireworm.

I am basing all three of these M. texanus on overall pronotal shape and relative length of antennae. Genitilia do not help much at the species-level. The locations for all three specimens are kind of in a gray area between the distributions of carolinensis and texanus.

By the way, M. carolinensis and M. texanus should be moved to Diplostethus, but I do not know how to move species with images withoug doing them all individually?!?

When you get the specimens back, they will be listed under Diplostethus, just so you know why :)

I think I remember how to move guide pages around, will give it a shot.

(Keep one of these if you'd like.)
