Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA May 5, 2005 Size: about 21 mm
Under bark of elevated conifer log. Because of its dark color I at first took it for a dead Dend*roides canad*ensis, which are so numerous in this area. But it proved to be very much alive. This is the only one I've found. It could be a different species of pyro*chroid. I hope to rear it to maturity.
(Alas, this one died in June, so we won't get to see later stages.)
