Extremely similar to Holcocephala abdominalis. Dr. Eric Fisher is quoted on BugGuide here that he considers them to be separate species. Identification criteria are probably beyond the scope of this site. Some individuals appear to be intermediate. Probably utilizes grassy fields like abdominalis.


Difficult to separate from other species in genus. Please place unidentified Holcocephala photos here.

There is 1 record in the project database.
