Moved from Tyloderma.

ID
Tyloderma punctatum Casey This species is much larger than aereum, and these two and numerous other species are easily confused.The extra views were essential for a certain ID. Dorsal only would not be enough in this genus.

looks close to aereum, but for the pronotal punctation
i don't know how variable those features may be

Moved from Snout and Bark Beetles.

Hi
No ID, but I was wondering, what do you use as a background? It's complements your excellent photos nicely.

 
Hi Graham,I am using a paint sample card taken
from a Glidden index,it is an almost off white that is very close
to a light grey and appears flat,"white high-hiding rm" is what
it refers to by Glidden.2013 is sequence number and 302 is leaf
number.
