Xylodromus depressus (Gravenhorst) - Dropephylla longula

Xylodromus depressus (Gravenhorst) - Dropephylla longula
Royal Oak, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
August 2, 1953
Size: 4 mm
UBC SEM collection
Coll. E. Argyle
Det. M.H. Hatch (1953)

Moved

from 'Am. Beetles':
"Old North American records of X. depressus are doubtful; these may refer to Dropephylla longula and/or X. concinnus"(1)

 
Good catch, V.
... and this one is D. longula. Xylodromus spp. have a distinctly bilobed labrum, in contrast to the more rectangular one of Dropephylla and omaliines in general. (Of course, the labrum isn't visible here.)

 
thanks, Margaret
Xylodromus still wanted... [sigh]
