rove beetle - Quedius alesi
Dixville, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA

Size: ~8mm


Looks like a good match
Moved from Quedius.

well with specimens identified as erythrogaster in the collection.

I searched Nearctica for a name that points to a red abdomen (unusual feature in Quedius), and found Quedius erythrogaster.
Looks pretty good . . .

Thanks Boris
This one does look different than the other Quedius in the guide. Maybe that'll help in identifying it.

first I thought it will be
this one:

but yours seems not to have the many punctures on head and pronotum, and the form of pronotum indicates Quedi*us sp. (Microsaurus subgenus, different features taken into account). Guess it can be identified, remarcably coulored as it is . . .
