Another specimen:
While browsing through my 2009 photos found images of another specimen, found on April 29, 2009. Photos of poor quality.

ID
Glocianus punctiger Correct again Vassili and it is new to CA, but not too surprising considering its US and Canadian distribution in 1982.Great photos.

 
thanks, Charlie
i wasn't surprised, either: one expect everything end up in CA...
vaguely remembering a [Vonnegut's?] quote to that general effect ))

 
got it:
"America is built on a tilt and everything loose slides to California."

 
.
My funnel is ready!! :)

Moved tentatively
Jim, do you have the specimen? the thing is, this euroimport seems to be yet unrecorded from CA...

Moved from Snout and Bark Beetles.

 
Thanks V!
Yes I still have the specimen, in the fridge, and probably still alive.

 
ok, good! hope you find more...
i would suggest dispatching the specimen[s] per instructions here

 
Done!
I also called the local ag commissioner's office, and they want, and will get the specimen.

 
most commendable expediency
