Single individual observed feeding on wing membrane of Corynorhinus townsendii, in mine shaft, roughly 10m from entrance. Five bats were observed in the mine, though only this individual had a Trichobius. Based on the host, this is most likely Trichobius corynorhinus.

I believe this is Four-spotted Palpita! Amazing translucent wings. Nearest reports seem to be southern Arizona. I assume this must be a migrant brought in by monsoon airflows from the south and east of here.

So far as I can tell unrecorded previously in California. Blank for this state in MPG, checked all BG images, and BOLD, is not mentioned occurring here in Powell, J. A. & P. A. Opler, 2009. Moths of Western North America, Pl. 23.42m; p. 179.

Description

Members of the subfamily Coniopteryginae are recognized by the presence of only one r-m crossvein in the middle of the wing. Two genera can be found in Arizona, Semidalis and Coniopteryx, and these may be further separated by the position of the m-cu crossvein (see second pic, highlighted red); in Coniopteryx this crossvein is located anterior to the branching of vein m, whereas in Semidalis this crossvein emerges behind the fork on vein m3+4. Four Semidalis and four Coniopteryx species are known from southern Arizona.

3-5 mm long, under a rock in serpentine chaparral. There were also ants under the rock that I idiotically didn't photograph. They were more like 8mm long and glossy (not argentines, not Prenelops, didn't really look like Camponotus, but I'm terrible with ants). Note to self: in the future. photograph any ants you see with pseudoscorpions.

All handheld shots with the Laowa 5x.
