    1. ha - indeed, but unless they've conquered more territory they don't appear to get out this far west. It seems like Melissodes tristis may be the only one in the Eumelissodes group that does, at least of those that are listed at BugGuide... Posted 4 hrs ago
      1. True, geographically unlikely, although there seem a handful of spottings somewhat close to your area, but they may also be misidentified. Posted 4 hrs ago
