Comment: The subgenus Iowanus [within the genus Texananus] is very difficult to identify from images alone. An underside view is necessary to show the subgenital plates in males or pregenital sternite in females, as these features are distinguishable between the three similar species: caducus, longipennis, and majestus. Unless a ventral image or a specimen is obtained, the identification cannot go past subgenus. This page acts as an umbrella for any records for which this applies. For more information on the three similar species, see below:

-caducus

-longipennis

-majestus

Status: Native
