Jefferson Notch area, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA May 12, 2007 Size: about 3.5 mm
I found a pair each of two species of slender little underbark beetles with very compact antennal clubs. This is the larger and more elongate of the two, and more handsome in my opinion due to the dark red humeral and apical markings of the elytra. They were right in there with the sa*p beetles on a couple of still-weeping stumps, one coniferous and one deciduous.
