Glaucias sp.

The genus Glaucias is in need of a revision, so even with the specimen at hand ID would be problematic.

  1. What do you think Arp? Posted 2 years ago
    1. Hi Matt - thank you so much for going through the troubles of shooting and uploading extra images!
      For the green one, frankly, I would be quite surprised if it would turn out to be the same species. To me the shape looks slightly different (but only slightly), but most of all the much smaller dots on the connexivium and the pale legs(!) tell me to assume a different species at first sight. I still might be wrong with that and I don't have a good suggestion for a different species of the top of my head (really don't know the bugs from that your corner of the woods), so you have just presented me with a new puzzle ;o)
      So, will have to get back to you on this one ...
      BTW: Did you ever receive notification of the direct messages I sent you through this site?
      Cheers, Arp

      P.S. First thought after having a quick look through a collection of images I ripped of the internet would be something Glaucias-ish ... Glaucias amyoti or subpunctatus or some such ... but will need to put some time into that ...

      1. No I never did receive a direct message. If it came to my email I may have deleted it. Posted 2 years ago
        1. Hi Matt, David Rider agrees that this would be some species of Glaucias, but cannot go to species either, stating that the genus is in need of a revision and that pending this at the moment even collection specimen from this region are hard/impossible to name.
          Will try to send you a new Personal Message.
          Cheers, Arp
