Click Beetle - Sericus incongruus

Click Beetle - Sericus incongruus
Mt. Washington, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
June 8, 2007

Moved
Neartica lists it as incongruus, so that's what I went with and added brunneus as a synonum.

 
pls remove brunneus from synonyma
brunneus is much older and thus can't be synonymized with incongruus, only vice versa: if they are one species, then brunneus supersedes; if treated as separate, then brunneus will remain a Palearctic sp., while incongruus, its vicarious Nearctic cousin

 
Synonum removed
I never thought about not being able to use the older name as a synonum, but now that you mention it, it makes perfect sense.

Moved
Moved from Elaterinae.

Moved
Moved from Click Beetles.

 
you know what, Tom? let's make it Sericus...
...'e lascia dir le genti' --we'll be on to smtg

 
yup; this is S. brunneus (L.)
...or incongruus (LeConte, 1853) IF the latter's validity has been restored

can be safely moved to Elaterinae
