Coordinator notes: I have no specimens of Cyllopsis pertepida from southeastern Colorado. They would be interesting to compare to those from north in Fremont and El Paso County and also to compare with western Colorado material. It's and interesting bug and usually difficult to find in any numbers. Mike
