Limonius griseus (Beauvois) - Gambrinus griseus
Barton Creek Greenbelt, near Hwy 360 entrance, Travis County, Texas, USA
March 19, 2015
Size: 11 mm
Det. B. Mathison, 2015

Moved from Limonius rudis.

I'll know for sure when I see the specimen, but I think griseus is most likely. Despite the name 'rudis', it is much more solid black than griseus, the latter of which has red along nearly the entire margin of the elytra and red hypomeron.

BTW, in Al Dhafer's revision, he cites some rudis in TX, collected by a 'M. Quim' et al. (must be a typo of your name)


thanks, L. griseus more-likely
