Detailed Description

Rarity here. This is species was described in the 1950s, named after the town it was collected near and only a handful of specimens have ever been collected that I am aware of. In fact it is so rare that it was on our list of "missing" species, published in 2011. So it is nice to see this species and, indeed, it was collected at Cape Canaveral National Seashore, whose nearest town is.....Titusville.
