4 mi. W. Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas, USA June 21, 2013 Size: ~ 8.5 mm
Came to MV/UV lights. Unsure which this is, an Alphitobius diaperinus or laevigatus. I noticed the apex of the hind tibia on this one is substantially narrower than submitted diaperinus, if that makes a difference. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
