Monday Night Mystery

Tonight’s entomological challenge:

1. What part of the body is shown? (3 pts)
2. To what family does this insect belong? (2 pts)
3. To what genus does this insect belong? (2 pts)
4. To what species does this insect belong? (3 pts)

Points will be awarded to first person to correctly guess each question, and the cumulative points winner across all mysteries for the month of February will win their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my insect photography galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.

Good luck!
