Proctacanthus micans Schiner 

Pupal cases for P. micans  were described by Dennis & Lavigne (1976a). A specimen deposited in the United States National Museum is labeled "Wheatland, Wyo.; VII­28, 1974; S. Dennis Collector. ” This description should include: abdominal spiracles elongate­oval to circular, light reddish brown and elevated along midline laterally; abdominal segment 9 with 2–4 low tubercles between pair of long, dorsoventrally flattened dorsal posterolateral processes; pair of very short, broad ventral posterolateral processes (previously called median lateral spines), that are not fused basally to the dorsal posterolateral processes, and pair of short ventromedian tubercle­like processes (previously called spine­like processes) that are as long as the ventral posterolateral processes  .
