thanks again, Doug
Moved from Dectes texanus.

Thanks to you both.
Common name is deceiving. We have soybeans in all directions across the entire state. Soybeans and corn that is.
Thanks again.

to my eye this is sayi
Based on specimens I've examined, this would fall into the "relatively long" category for the second antennomere. Lingafelter apparently uses a different diagnostic (tarsal coloration), which gives different results at times.

Moved from Dectes.
