Beetle - Hylesinus
Richmond Hill, York Region, Ontario, Canada

Size: ~ 2 mm
This female had a really hard time staying righted. This belly-up view exposes the problem - a large parasitic mite latched to the sternites. I had to remove the mite (difficult!) before I was able to take the first photo in this series.
