DWORC acquired this rather unusual specimen of occlupanid in an SF bay area Smart and Final. It was found clinging to a bag of paper plates and bowls. The unique mushroom-shaped oral groove and thickly flanged integument has led to a proposal for L. rectangulus to be placed within its own taxonomic family, the Mycognathidae.
