Lachesilla sulcata Garcia Aldrete - Lachesilla sulcata - female

Lachesilla sulcata Garcia Aldrete - Lachesilla sulcata - Female
Welder Wildlife Refuge, San Patricio County, Texas, USA
April 26, 2011
Size: 2.0 mm
Caught sweeping native grasses. I could not key this one even though I prepared a permanent slide of the genitalia, etc. I sent a drawing made with my drawing tube to Mockford and this was his comment: "I finally identified the other Lachesilla from Welder--the one that you had made a slide of. It is L. sulcata Garcia Aldrete. It would be impossible to key females of it with my book because I had keyed to the species group on male characters, alone."
