Size: 5 mm
Eremocoris sp.

Eremocoris ferus (Say)
Merrill Sweet det.

Moved from Eremocoris.

Moved from Drymus unus.

wrong ID -- can't be Drymus

Please elaborate.
It would be helpful if you explained your opinion.

doesn't look remotely like one :-]
but, seriously, in D. pronotum is never multicolor w/sharp edges. this kind of pronotum reminds of Beosus--Raglius--Rhyparochromus kinda types, Beosus being my fav.candidate in this case

Thanks for pointing out my ID error. Your candidates for genera don't occur in NA, except for a few immigrant species not in my area. However, I reexamined the specimens and I am fairly sure they are dark examples of Eremocoris.
