Found under tire in a junk yard. Was around 3” in diameter looks to be possibly a male. Great color. I was very glad to have even seen it. Laynesville,Indiana around 11:00Am. Southern Indiana

Nice photo, yes it’s probably male. Filling in the identification final field is only available to the moderator ( that’s me!), you did it correctly. We’re worldwide volunteers trying to keep up with the requests, they don’t all get done. We’d appreciate any help if you have the time. We ID to taxon level that we’re fairly sure of. A junkyard sounds like a great place to take bug photos. I’m settling for a junky house habitat (mine).
