Status:

Laphria winnemana is part of a difficult complex of small, black Laphria which are troublesome to identify. Males can be identified by structure of the genitalia, and the presence/absence and shape of small prongs on the posterior margin of the sixth abdominal tergite. They can occasionally be identified from a sharp macro photo (or ideally, a series of photos, or a specimen). Females are essentially unidentifiable without dissection, unless they are collected in copula with a male (hopefully these don't readily hybridize!). Photos that cannot be determined to species (including all females) should be placed in the Laphria canis complex. Thank you.

There is 1 record in the project database.
