Nidicola engys

Parker Canyon Lake
Santa Cruz County, Arizona
Coordinates: 31.430994, -110.449347
Elevation: 5,422 ft
August 9, 2023
Size: 1.1 mm
Found in oak leaf litter and extracted by using a Berlese funnel
Determined by Tom J. Henry who said: “I can see raised veins on the hemelytra and the explanate pronotal margins do not extend forward beyond the collar, so I would call this N. engys Drake & Herring, which would be a new U.S. record. It also compares well with specimens in our collection.”
