Merry Christmas!
I have finally gotten around to making printed labes for my Indiopsocus specimens. You may have told me already but .. I'd love the latitude/longitude values for this specimen.

Merry Christmas to you too!
Here's the coordinates I came up with on Google maps:
42.604379, -71.616780

Moved from Blaste quieta.
Thanks Diane. This is a good example why voucher specimens are valuable.

Upon examining the specimen I see I was wrong...
This one is Indiopsocus campestris! Nothing like a good close look. And what a great shot of this beauty. Mockford lists the range as "throughout Florida, north on the Atlantic Coast to Long Island, New York, and around the Gulf Coast to southern Texas.

Moved from Amphigerontiinae.

Sure looks to me like...
Blaste quieta male but I don't like the look of the pterostigma. I want to make sure it's not the male of Metylophorus novaescotiae. OK, one can see on the forewing of the male M. novaescotiae that the "vein M forming distal closure of discoidal cell" is clearly concave so this specimen cannot be M. novasccotiae. .
