Thank you, Dan! Lucky you to have seen this species several times
- and other fulgorids also! (Is that one I see in the header to your doucettesphotos page?). As far as I know this is my one-and-only. BTW, some beautiful photos on your page!
Thank you bayucca... but WHAT a challenge to orient myself to the descriptions vs. my photos!! I kept getting lost in all the lines. I found the 2001 paper by Willmott, Constantino and Hall and Fig 1 helped to orient me correctly, I think. Subtle differences at first glance - but more obvious once I actually 'see' them...finally! I will upload a few more images (the ones against the bark vs. the black background make it easier to see the wing margins).
Daniele, thank you for the SOTW. What an honor, and a real inspiration to learn and do more! It is a small world - it was around 2009 that I contacted Eric through AllExperts and he got me on track. (THANKS Eric!) That was after 5 years of hunting on line, talking to people, and one prior (unsuccessful) attempt through AllExperts. It was exciting to finally get the answer - and a privilege to hear it directly from Lois.
And Thank You, Mark and Antonio, for your kind words!
