Jefferson Notch area, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA May 27, 2007 Size: about 10 mm
I must have thought I'd taken some better shots during my session with this newly eclosed Podabrus but this is the only whole-body shot I have. I must say, since I had forgotten collecting this beetle as a cantharid larva and only had the pupa to go on, I was not expecting to see a cantharid adult in the pupa cubicle :-)
