Wow. A new Lycid species with triple antennae and quadruple elytra!

Moved, I agree with below
Moved from Lycus fernandezi.

Lycus arizonensis
This appears to be L. arizonensis:

The difference is that L. fernandezi has a much more notched/jagged boundary between the black and orange regions of the elytra. Both were recorded at SRER during Gathering_2013.

I thought the reference to the notch in the info page referred to a central notch between the wings, not a jagged black across the whole wing. Thanks. I'll check my other images from that tree to see if i have both.
