The Eurycotis slides are showing E. opaca. These was collected by myself during several trips in Cuba. Several local colour forms are distributed yet into Europe.

Eurycotis spp. are determinet after the angels and other lobes on the abdomenend and of course on the genitals, also on glands. Defently not by pictures - as several person like to do that!

by the way, all Cuban species was determined by E. Gutierrez (a specialist on Eurycotis species, if anybody involved into the material) and me.

He was talking about this colorform of E. floridana from Florida, as opposed to E. opaca from Cuba. On a related note, aren't E. opaca pretty tiny compared to E. floridana?
