Tritoma tenebrosa
Don Chandler has now examined and mounted this specimen. He say it "seems to be Tritoma tenebrosa, a rare species not known
from the New England fide Downie and Arnett, but recorded from New York."

Thank you, Don. Music to my ears :-)

Hi Jim,

it´s an Erotylid. Form of maxillary palpa indicates: possibly Tritoma.

Thank you, Boris.
I've sent the specimen to Don Chandler so he can key it out. We'll find out for sure if it's Tritoma. Meanwhile I'll place it in Erotylidae.
