Branch longhorn - Haplidus testaceus

Branch longhorn - Haplidus testaceus
Cochiti Lake, Sandoval County, New Mexico, USA
May 10, 2015
Size: ~15mm
Under pine bark of a discarded branch. ID to genus is good enough for me, thanks.

Dan Heffern says:
"The photo matches the holotype photo of Haplidus breviceps Casey, 1924 (per Bezark's photo web site: and this species is currently considered a synonym of H. testaceus LeConte, 1873. The other photos of on Bezark's web page for [/i]H. testaceus[/i] have a more rounded pronotum. This genus is not well-known perhaps because they are more common before the summer season."

Moved from Long-horned Beetles.

Fred Skillman agrees

...that cause toothache to many a good people
