The definitive Varacosa shenandoa images. Leg and pedipalp images taken using 16mm + 10mm extension tubes plus the 60mm macro lens plus Raynox 250. Images sharpened using LetsEnhance.io (both original and sharpened images provided here). Pedipalps are perfect match with drawings 42 and 43 in Bradley 1979. Bradley describes proximal retrolateral ventral macroseta of tibia I extending more than one-half distance along shaft of median retrolateral macroseta, but I've never seen it extend beyond one-half--it's almost always exactly one-half.

Description

I wanted to practice with the zoom capabilities of my iPhone 14 and a new Xenvo magnifier. I tested them out on some Texas Snakeweed/Broomweed from the neighborhood, a species which is keyed out based on fine characteristics of the achenes and pappus.
The first two (or three?) images were taken with the iPhone at max (5X) zoom. The remaining images of the flowers and achenes were taken with a Clarus 15X Macro attachment (from Xenvo) positioned over the iPhone macro lens. I have annotated a few of the latter images to show characters that are useful in a key in the Flora of North Central Texas for separating species of Gutierrezia. The plants were obtained at the location of the pin on Q Ranch Road; they were photographed under artificial light at home. (I was so intent on documenting the flowers that I forgot to obtain images of the whole plant! Anyway, it looked like all the millions of other annual broomweed plants in pastures across much of Texas.)

I have seen specimens in the Genus Catorhinta on or near my house on five previous occasions, ON each occasion, the question "Is this C. texana or C,. selector has come up. Three have been identified as C. texana; the other two simply remain at genus, Jason Botz is quoted in BugGuidenet as follows: "[C. texana] can be recognized by the narrow yellow band at the apex of the third antennomere, along with a slightly wider look to the abdomen and a more orange-colored connexivial stripe. https://bugguide.net/node/view/1131911. Here, the connexivial stripe does appear noticeably orange and several of the pictures show the light (very light) yellow antennna band clearly. I believe this to be C. texana.
