Trichochrous

Trichochrous
Robert J. Bernard Biological Field Station, Claremont, Los Angeles County, California, USA
May 14, 2012
Size: 3.5 mm
Found in Phacelia distans.
If I interpret this correctly, minute spines on front tibiae, also hairs flat on dorsum, but erect along edges, should be one of the >80 CA spp. of Trichochrous. If so, which one?
Update: examined the specimen this morning, it is indeed Trichochrous. Perhaps we can get more later.
