Laemophloeidae - Placonotus falinorum

Beaten off a dead branch in a deciduous forest.

Moved from Placonotus.

Placonotus falinorum
I have just dissected one of two specimens that Robert sent for examination along with several P. zimmermanni, all from Quebec. The genitalia are identical with those of P. falinorum published in 2011 in Insecta Mundi #201.

cool --thanks, Mike
sorry about the hasty move

Moved from Placonotus zimmermanni.

This doesn't look quite right for P. zimmermanni. I'd very much like to examine it.

Moved from ID Request.

I didn't recognize the elytron shape, but now I see it when I compare to more individuals.
