I found this larva Sept. 3, 2007 in a Fomitopsis pinicola conk to which I had introduced a couple of adults that I found under another conk of the same species May 12, 2007. Kojun Kanda
said he thought the larvae of this species had never been described. This one has affinities with the larvae of other subfamily members Bolito*phagus cort*icola
and Boli*totherus co*rnutus
This find is one of the byproducts of my Search for Pyth*o st*rictus
on and near Mt. Washington.
