Dipogon brevis recalvus? - Dipogon brevis - female

Dipogon brevis recalvus? - Dipogon brevis - Female
Cincinnati, Clifton, Burnet Woods, Hamilton County, Ohio, USA
September 18, 1994
Size: 10 mm
This specimen is rather large for a species in the subgenus Dipogon. It also represents the mess that is this genus. D. brevis is supposed to have a concolorous body (either all black or all ferruginous). This specimen actually more closely matches the color in the species description of D. texana. The next specimen may also be an intermediate since Ohio seems to be a broad area where two subspecies of D. brevis meet...or there are two separate species.
