Dead Log Beetle - Pytho americanus

Dead Log Beetle - Pytho americanus
Boxborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
March 26, 2006
Size: 13mm
Another Pythos.

Moved from Pytho planus.

I'm going to guess this is P. planus.
The top looks black but is probably just very dark brown. The light tan legs and the even pronotal margins look more like planus.

P. planus
That looks right.
