Moved

Moved from Cyrtopogon.

 
Reasons for moving:
These two linked photos have inherited different identifications, presumably due to their comment history. I'd say they're both Cyrtopogon falto, what with the golden mystax, half-red tibiae, corner spots of pollinosity on the tergites, brown-striped scutum pollinosity, and anteriorly pollinose scutellum. They are certainly not Heteropogon. We have an empty page for C. falto, perhaps these were meant to go there but got lost en route?

Fantastic robber
Surely this is another NE Heteropogon species. Mike will know it.

 
colorful legs
If things keep up, we're going to keep Mr Thomas busy:-)

 
Robber
I forget you guys have all those Cyrtopogons up there too.
