Unknown Lace bug - Alveotingis brevicornis

Unknown Lace bug - Alveotingis brevicornis
Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma, USA
June 14, 2004
Size: ~3.8mm
Going through some old material and found this one. Collected in lindgren funnel trap (accidental capture?) next to a wood products company. Suspect it may be Alveotingis grossocerata but we do not have this species in Oklahoma and it would be a new state record. Seems to match the drawing in The Tingitoidea of Ohio By Herbert Osborn, Carl John Drake (1916).

Alveotingis brevicornis
I'm inclined to think that this is Alveotingis brevicornis. From what I can see in the picture, the hemelytral areas aren't very well defined like they generally are in Hesperotingis. However, I'd like to be able to check other characteristics if it was possible to take more images with more light, possibly an enlarged picture of the head and pronotum and one of the side view. This would help decide from another slight possibility, Hesperotingis fuscata, which occurs in KS and Colorado. Alveotingis brevicornis occurs in IA, Miss, and Minn. Either way, this looks like a State record.

Thanks for the extra pics. Dr. Grantham. Those helped. I'll stay with my first ID, Alveotingis brevicornis for now. Hesperotingis fuscata has the hemlytral areas well defined, higher pronotal carinae, and vertical paranota.

 
sweet... thanks, Drs Grantham & Miller!
