Red Turpentine Beetle - Dendroctonus valens

Red Turpentine Beetle - Dendroctonus valens
In Westwood - elevation 5100ft, Lassen County, California, USA
May 13, 2016
Size: 8mm
I do not often see these beetles; but this year I have seen several in my yard. Perhaps a result of the drought effect on the local pine forests these last few years.
