Carpelimus exiguus group. In
Carpelimus exiguus group. In this group males and females are radically different, not only in size, proportion of body parts but also in terms of sculpture... This makes it very difficult to identify them on the basis of a single specimen (or photo). The group is also very widespread (mostly saline areas, ocean shores, lake banks) and has many species.
