Description

Here is my record of the assassin bug that many of us documented at Amistad. A second illustration points out key parts of the insect. Differentiating R. hamatus from R. guttatus is not always simple but the original literature (Blatchley 1926) includes a key which describes the differences. I've included a marked up copy of my image (2nd pic) to illustrate my understanding of those differences.

Simply put, on biguttatus *half* of the hardened basal part of the forewing (corium) is ALL yellow with no dark sliver splitting towards its base. This example from Louisiana shows a classic Rasahus biguttatus:
https://bugguide.net/node/view/839960/bgimage
In classic hamatus (as illustrated in a line drawing in Blatchley's original work), a substantial dark area penetrates towards the base of the corium on each wing, splitting the yellow and creating an "M"-shaped yellow patch on the basal part of the wings as shown in the present example. Often, the outer edge of that yellow M is also missing so that there is only yellow along the inner seams of the corium.

The color on the narrow clavus, the sliver of the wing basal to the V-shaped seams on the corium, is variable but basically it is about 1/2 yellow on hamatus and 2/3 to 3/4 yellow on biguttatus (thus "in great part yellow" in Blatchley's original phrasing).

The last element is the "connexivum" or the edge of the abdomen exposed on each side of the FWs. This is reportly widely visible AND boldly marked black and yellow on BOTH sexes of biguttatus. It is usually mostly pale on both sexes of hamatus and either wide (female) or narrow (male).

As I understand it, the present bug shows all the correct marks for a male Rasahus hamatus.
