At hospital on edge of jungle for 3 weeks fighting cellulitis/erysipelas. Hope to get at some postings soon. I enjoy looking back over old spottings to see if I can figure out what they are. Slow work, but fun.

I am glad you are interested in my old photos, Tukup. Take your time, I hope you have some fun. :-) By the way, I am waiting the tortoise beetles you promised...

I reference his pictures a lot. I never knew him and he was gone before I joined PN, but I appreciate the quality of his photos. Very helpful for IDs. As I get time I'd like to keep browsing your unidentified. At least we are on the same continent and some species stretch all the way across.

Thank you again, Tukup (ps. - I miss Andreas Kay. A true master).

Good catch Sergio. This looks like the same as we have in Ecuador shown in the link. There are at least 275 species with no descriptions so I can't take it any further. Thanks for sharing.
