Micridium sp. - Micridium

Micridium sp. - Micridium
Sandia Mnts, Bernalillo County, New Mexico, USA
January 13, 2008
Size: 0.6 mm
These are quite common in mixed Gambels oak/ponderosa pine detritus in the mountains.
They cleanly key to Micridium in American Beetles. Hall says there is only M lineatum described so far and D&A says this is not lineatum. So it is probably another of the undescribed species Hall mentions.

Thanks. I'm trying to improve my technique by studying what others are doing. My lighting is still problematic.
