Wamba? - Wamba crispulus - female

Wamba? - Wamba crispulus - Female
Deane, Letcher County, Kentucky, USA
July 12, 2014
Size: 2mm
Found on sheet under trees.
She had a parasite on her back where the black color is. I took a pair of tweezers and lifted it up. Heated a needle and touched it to the parasite and it let go.

Great work!

 
Thank you
Very much! I would say the male was one also. And some of the earlier ones that looked like this.
I am not at sure the Male and the other one was ever actually looked at N.C. University.

 
Awesome job!
:). Good to see one of these identified by an expert!! Great find.

 
Thanks!
I am thrilled we finally got one identified too.

 
This one was on my wish list ...
of species to find. I knew when you found one there was a chance I would too (as we tend to find a lot of the same odd ones). I wasn't even looking for them and one just dropped down in front of me the other day. :D


Now your mission should you choose to accept is to find a Lupettiana mordax ;D

Nice one!
.

 
Thanks!!
I am soooo hopeful this one** is one LOL.

I still think this is one, possibly the Male of this one. But I could be way off too. LOL


 
I just read ...
the comments on the male ... what do you think the odds are that that one should wind up here after all? It looks too similar!

 
I think so too.
Kevin has it, so hopefully we will know soon.

 
Nice!
At least you were able to get it back.

 
Yes for sure.
I had another male but it died before it matured fully. It's here somewhere I think!

 
Positive ID.
From Dr.G.B. Edwards today that this is a mature Female Wamba crispulum. I sent her to him July 21st and he e-mailed me today with his positive ID.
I sent Mandy and Lynette the e-mail I received from him today.
