To accompany my message on Doto floridicola, here are some photos of Doto lemchei. As I said before, my observations are that Doto floridicola is only found on Aglaophenia kirchenpaueri, while Doto lemchei, which is similar in size and proportions but quite different in pigmentation, is found only on Aglaophenia tubulifera.
