Handsome Fungus Beetle - Lycoperdina ferruginea
Bethlehem, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
October 10, 2005
Size: 5mm
It looks like it might be Rhanidea unicolor. Any help would be great.

Moved.
Please note species. I just found one yesterday.

 
Thanks
for finding the ID on this beetle, Jim.

 
Eggs?
Looks like yours has some eggs hanging on it too.

 
I didn't even notice
but now I do see something on it's leg and on the elytra.

right family, but ...
Rhanidea unicolor - see also here - probably not it, but closer ...

 
Handsome Fungus Beetle
I agree, it's close, but not quite close enough to be either species. I'll place it by family. Thanks for the help Phillip.
