The Specimen

The Discussion

Posts: 1Only Stenonema left in North America (after taxonomic revision) is S. femoratum. The underside of the abdomen has rows of roundish dark spots at the lateral margins. This one does not.

Hi Dewalt -

Welcome to the forum.

This specimen appears to have rounded gills as far as I can tell, and I'm sure Jason had it under a microscope for a better look than shows here. I wasn't aware that sternal maculation was diagnostic for this (now) monotypical genus. What is the source of your information?

I'm seeing lateral projections on 2 - 9 and rounded gills. I suggest we hold off on speculative posts that will fill this topic up with unnecessary clutter, at least until we hear more from Dewalt on his rationale. I'd sure like him to be able to address the central issue without having to scroll up the topic too far to find it.
