Velvet Ant? - Dasymutilla foxi - male

Velvet Ant? - Dasymutilla foxi - Male
Baca County, Colorado, USA
August 6, 2013

Moved from Velvet Ants.

Great find!
This is Dasymutilla foxi. The color pattern and distribution almost seal it, but the hind tibia is curved in a way that no other male velvet ants in the USA have. Very cool to see it this far north.

Thank you!
Thank you for the information!
