Identification Help

This is a male species.


To the left you can that the first tarsus is big and ball-like. This feature is the same with all Trichius species, and makes it a male. If this is very small, needless to say, its a female.

To the right you can see the middle leg with a clearly pronounced tooth. This defines the Trichius fasciatus species. No other Trichius has this.
