Ferdinandea on San Bruno Mountain - Ferdinandea croesus

Ferdinandea on San Bruno Mountain - Ferdinandea croesus
San Bruno Mountain, San Mateo County, California, USA
March 18, 2012
Black arista, lack of dark bands at distal ends of anterior tergites, and what I believe are four visible notopleural setae indicate this is Ferdinandea croesus...which according to Shannon (1924) was the only species known from CA (in 1924). See this post for more discussion of species ID and links to references.
