Amazing!
We don't have any live pictures of these guys on the guide! Thanks for the amazing contribution!

 
Do you know the distribution?
does it occur in AZ?

 
Not really...
All records I've seen of this species come from California, don't think these range into AZ. I could be wrong though!

 
Actually, according to this source
right here, they live in CA and NV, no records from AZ though...

 
Thank you!
I guess we have to leave it out of the Arizona Beetle Book then

 
Afraid so. :(

cutest thing!!

Moved, think we've got it: Lariversius tibialis
Not Eleodes, but close!

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

 
Fantastic!
Thanks!

weird one for sure! How about an Eleodes?!?

 
Sort of reminiscent of...
E. osculans. But obviously not!
