Moved
Moved from Tychius.

Ellescus sp.
I'm pretty sure this is the genus Ellescus. The species in the genus really need revision and I am not sure which one this is. There is one 'form' where the postscutellar area is darker (and less scaly) as in this photo.

i think it's C.W. O'Brien
you still on the 2nd floor?

Moved
Moved from Phyllotrox.

Moved
Moved from Lignyodes helvolus.

dunno what it is but doesn't look like L. helvolus in the guide
i doubt it's Lignyodes, either... reminds me of Phyllotrox (Derelomini), probably Ph. ferrugineus in mint condition: the vestiture looks so much denser than on other pics in BG, and it's about half the length of Lignyodes

i'm far from being sure of anything

 
yes, Lignyodes was a very sorry guess...
Thanks!
