scientific name    Neottiglossa trilineata    

Found in grassy habitats across North America (Scudder 2004).

Adults can be found between June and August.

Neottiglossa trilineata is elongate, oval and 5.5-6.0 mm long. The head is black or brownish black with deep black punctures. It is triangularly shaped lacking swollen juga. The pronotum and scutellum have a pale median line that extends from base to apex. The elytra and base of pronotum are dull yellow. The legs are yellow with femora and tibia having black lines or spots. The beak just about reaches hind coxae. Neottiglossa trilineata can be distinguished from N. undata because of its larger size darker colouring and absence of line on clypeus (McPherson 1982).
