Dusky Dasher

On the far side of the Rio Tarcoles bridge, on 2 July 2017, we found a female Dusky Dasher (Micrathyria schumanni). This species is found from Mexico south to Venezuela, and not in the United States. We got excited because our fearless leader, Dennis Paulson, did not immediately provide us with a name. After our return home, Dennis researched and concluded that this dasher is the only one whose females have an almost pain, brown abdomens.
