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 from Phyllotrox.

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...
