Pseudopanurgus rugosus, collected by the glorious State of Virginia Natural Heritage group.  

This whole group is a bit of a nightmare.   

Uncommon, tiny, often very similar looking and widely ignored by taxonomists.  I often have to leave them as sp….or as we say ‘spuh’.  Which is not something that should be happening in this modern sophisticated, send-a-man-to-the-moon, sort of society.  But it is.  P. rugosus...not so difficult.  Has ‘rugged’ topography on its back…thus its name.
