I would think Blue Quill would be a good common name choice.

OK I presumed that this was in the Paraletophebia group, but past that you got me. It appears to have molted fairly recently. I only say that because of the yellow coloring that is typical to that process, and the abdomen showing color changes. Without legs and only being able to say it is in the
P. mollis size range, and it was taken with the others, and I placed it in the Paraletophebia file.

WOW I just look a little closer as I loaded the pictures and noticed all 6 legs are there they are just super faint.


Time to learn more.

Mack.
