At last! - Physocephala burgessi - male

At last! - Physocephala burgessi - Male
Sweeney Ridge, San Mateo County, California, USA
June 22, 2013
Same individual, perched here on leaf of a native blackberry, Rubus ursinus.

Note how short the 1st (i.e. basal) antennal segment is here...barely one-third the length of the 3rd antennal segment. P. burgessi and the eastern species P. furcillata are the only two nearctic species of Physocephala with such short 1st antennal segments.

Please see remarks under 1st image in this series for more detailed info on this post.
