Found drowned in a cup of water left out overnight on my desk.

Resembles Proceroplatus in the guide. Closest matches are this one still at family level, and maybe this one .

For what its worth, keying using (1) leads to Orfelia.


Laterotergite haired = Proceroplatus
Laterotergite bare = some other Orfeliini

Laterotergites haired
