Pararchytas decisa (Nearctic) 2

Here is a nice specimen of Pararchytas decisa (male) – not the darkened wing bases and vein rm. I have yet to track down Norm Woodley’s revision* of this genus so the determination is tentative until I can see a description of all 3 species.

EDIT (9/8/2011): I now have Norm Woodley’s key and this is confirmed as Pararchytas decisa.
