Thanks Frans
That's great, another new species!

Tomolonus reductus
Hi Tom. One of the smallest Tomoceridae in the USA. The eyepatch should count 3 single eyes, but that I cannot recognise in the image, however.
So not a juvenile Tomocerus as I first assumed...
Another new genus ans species for the guide.

Naked!
This one looks strange because it has no setae.

 
Rated R
Maybe being naked and it's large size, the id can go further, I'm hoping.
