Pretty Stinky - Stiretrus anchorago

Pretty Stinky - Stiretrus anchorago
Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County, Florida, USA
June 18, 2006
Looks somewhat like this, but not quite:

Stiretrus, maybe?
Compare below and in guide. They are quite variable.

It could very well be. Shall I place it on that genus page?

I say put it at species level.
There's only one species in the US, according to the UF site. I read that there are a few subspecies - maybe we'll get our wide range of patterns better organized some day.
