Recognized by sight: this is a good match for what I have been calling L. pseudocarnea and which I now think is L. pigmentosipes. Described from Humboldt, but Largent also examined specimens from Alameda and San Mateo Co. It is common in Santa Cruz Co.

subgenus Leptonia, that I find frequently at UCSC. It is so striking that it is often misidentified as L. carnea (I did this once, before I had found both). For now I call it L. “pseudocarnea”, but I am working on finding a better name for it.
