I have this piece of a proetid from Johnson county. The bump on the top of the head is a drop of water, I was trying to bring out some of the detail by wetting it. Somewhere I have a paper by Hickerson where he identifies several species by the pattern of the dark furrows on the head. I think I misplaced the paper.
