Neopamera albocincta.
 
 
 
Size: approx. 4 mm. Photo: 05/28/12, 10 pm.


The base of last antennal of Neopamera albocincta is rather pale and its size is under 6 mm. It can be found in most states in the Eastern US but appears most common in Florida. The genus has three species north of Mexico of which I already found two in our yard. The missing third one is N. neotropicalis which in the US is only found in Florida.
