Ceropales robinsonii - Female
Ohio, USA
November 30, 1999
Size: 16 mm
This image isn't fantastic but it's good enough until someone gets a better shot of this uncommon species (hey, I didn't think anyone would ever photograph Notocyphus dorsalis). This is the oldest specimen I have ever seen that isn't a type specimen, it was taken 18 July 1899 and the only locality given was "Ohio". This specimen is from the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History.
