I hadn’t planned on doing another ID Challenge so quickly after the previous one¹; however, this critter is just too cool to keep in my pocket any longer. Order-level identification shouldn’t be too much of a challenge, but I’ll be impressed with anyone who drills down much deeper than that – 2 pts each for correct order-, family-, genus-, and species-level identifications. What the heck – I’ll go ahead and throw in superfamily as a points-earner as well. Supporting information for your IDs will help your cause, and we all know my predilection for handing out bonus points on the most subjective of bases. As always, standard ID Challenge rules apply.
¹ For those of you wondering about the recent flurry of posts, I’m on a well-earned vacation right now and have pledged to fritter away as much time on idle pursuits as possible rather than fret about accomplishing anything constructive.
