I was thinking female because of the red eyes, but looking at Diane Young's specimens, I believe this is a male.

Did you "save" this one in alcohol?
Mockford and I would like to see it up real close. This one could be one of several species.

Came to get my pooter ... got back, it was GONE. Now, I keep my pooter hanging on the wall of my back porch.

I never could get up the nerve to use that term...
"pooter" sounds so gastroentological. "Aspirator" has a much more hassophisticated sound to it.

Yeah, right
Assperator sounds better?
