Tiny orange beetle under bark - Symbiotes gibberosus
Stulsaft Park, Redwood City, San Mateo County, California, USA July 11, 2010 Size: 1.5 mm
I found and collected this tiny orange beetle under a piece of bark on a fallen log. Having a lot of trouble with this one - cryptophagid? mycetophagid? too small for a byturid, right? Help! In situ photo.
