What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

different variety of Tegrodera
Found in my yard in the Owens Valley (Lone Pine), elev. 4600′, striding about quite purposefully and fearlessly. According to http://entmuseum.ucr.edu/bug_spotlight/posted%20Images-pages/27.htm,
this is the true Tegrodera latecincta: "The third and northernmost species is T. latecincta Horn, known from the Antelope and Owens valleys. " Whereas the photos you have already posted are of Tegrodera aloga, according to the above reference. About 1.5" long. Be all that as it may, thanks for a great site!

Hi JDB,
Thanks for the photo, information, link and correction. This is an excellent example of when location is critical for exact species identification.
