6.6 miles East of Wauconda, Okanogan County, Washington, USA August 22, 2016 Size: ~ 7 mm
Captured in the same cow dung as the other recent dung beetles thru this one is a Hydrophilid, suspect genus Sphaeridium? Note, faint red markings on upper side portions of the elytra, best seen in lateral view. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.
