Recognized by sight: P. uliginicola is described with a “pale drab (”pallid Quaker
drab")" context which is corroborated with one of Kauffman’s photos at the back of Smith’s book (Plate 32). This observation has a rather dark context unlike your obs 62434. I wonder if there could be more than one of these critters out there?
