Lasiochilus pallidulus Reuter, female
Moved from Lasiochilus. Tentatively ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Iustin.

L. hirtellus & L. pallidulus are pretty similar, so a male is needed to be absolutely sure. It is an odd specimen though, as the ostiolar peritreme is rather straight, not as curved as my Florida specimens.

Probably Lasiochilus
The subfamily/family was recently revised (Carpintero 2013) and I'm trying to get a copy. Looks like quite a few changes so I'm not sure how this will fall out.

Moved tentatively
