Micropeplus  - Megarthrus pictus

Micropeplus - Megarthrus pictus
Enumclaw, King County, Washington, USA
March 22, 2012
Size: ~ 2 mm
Based on description from Hatch, "Beetles of the Pacific Northwest Part II" and the image from same believe Megarthrus is M. pictus. This would also, I believe, include the following two specimens from British Columbia that were submitted by Tim Loh.

For the helpful figure upload Gary. I just took at look at Tim's photos and agree that they are pictus. Hopefully we can make a little headway with the rest of the Megarthrus!

Moved from Megarthrus.
