Mis-ID'd monotomid

Hey all,
Just happened to notice that our Leptipsius striatus is misidentified. The monotomid in question is actually Hesperobaenus abbreviatus.

The two-segmented club moves it out of Leptipsius, and other characters move it into Hesperobaenus. Our current picture of Hesperobaenus abbreviatus matches nicely with these "Leptipsius."

Looks like we need a Leptipsius on the guide. I'll see what I can rustle up.

my bad --thanks for pointing this out; pix moved
Leptipsius added to the wish list :(

I've got a few
point mounted here at UGA. I'll see what I can do.

cool. much appreciated, Tommy
