Thermonectus - Thermonectus basillaris

Thermonectus - Thermonectus basillaris
Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA
July 9, 2007
Size: 10 mm
Thermonectus basillaris. Came to UV light.

It's cool to see another Thermonectus species. There only seems to be four of them in the genus and I've never seen anything but marmoratus. Is this beetle common in your area?

I'm not sure how common. I'm just starting to figure out how to key this family. A reference I have (Downie & Arnett) say that this is a common species at lights. There is also a T. ornaticollis in my area.
