, a large (8 mm) and distinctively-marked member of this family. Members of this family are usually seen on flowers, but this one was running about the the foliage of a dogwood (Cornus florida
). I also recently found one at my lighted kitchen window. Taxonomic note: Expert discussion on Bugguide has suggested that this particular species needs to be moved out of the genus Glipa
, perhaps to the genus Mordella
or the (tongue-twisting) Hoshihananomia
. However there appears to be no official publication on this, so in Glipa
it stays for now.
