Ant-like stone beetle - Euconnus pecki

Ant-like stone beetle - Euconnus pecki
South East, Oklahoma, USA
February 7, 2003
Size: 2mm
Connophron pecki. This beetle was sent to me by Karl Stephen to photograph. He is the recognized beetle expert in Oklahoma and is writting a paper on these beetles so the ID is good. The picture is not great but it is my first try with a microscope and even though it was a $10,000 Nikon I did not have the instruction book and only two hours to play with it. I did a search and could not find this genus in the bug guide so I am posting it.
If one of the editors would be kind enough to create a page for it I would appreciate it.

BTW, this
is an unpublished name - a manuscript species. Taxonomically it does not exist.

Stone beetle
I created a page for the family, now I have a question: is the title ant-like stone beetles the common name for the family? If so I will add it to the page.

Yes, Ant-like Stone Beetles is good
This group is covered in Chapter 20 of American Beetles (1). I've placed it in its proper Taxonomic order.

Might as well create new Genus & species pages as well.
