Great work, Jeff!
I'll cross that family off my bugguide beetle family wish list :-) Now if you could get a series of shots of this little guy capturing and eating a spider, that would be quite something! Supposedly they first narcotize the spider with a chemical secretion.

have shot of adult?

great shot and new family for guide!

Yoo-hoo! :)
Jeff raised an issue that I need an opinion on in the Taxonomy Proposals forum, and you're just the one to answer it.
