Similar individual with furcula visible:


Seira bipunctata

Moved for expert attention.
Moved from ID Request.

Are these two views of the same individual? If not, the pics should be unlinked.

Oops. They are not.

Remember, you can always cross-reference specimens found near one another by placing thumbnails in the Remarks section of the submission form.
