bristly-antennaed carabid - Loricera pilicornis
Mt. Washington, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
June 8, 2007
Size: about 7.5 mm
I noticed the six faint elytral depressions on this beetle when I collected it but the wild bristles on the first few antennomeres were quite a surprise once I saw the enlarged images.

Thanks, Boris.
We had one image, classified thusly: Carabinae » Loricerini » Loricera

 
Loricera pilicornis
according to Downie and Arnett only Loricera in the northeast US is Loricera pilicornis. (nice to have an easy one every once and a while :)

 
Well, the name certainly fits :-)
Thanks for checking it out, Tim.
