Plate-Thigh Beetle - Eucinetus terminalis

Plate-Thigh Beetle - Eucinetus terminalis
Medford, (~25 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
July 15, 2007
Size: ~2.8mm
Eucinetidae, another new family for me. From Downie and Arneet, this appears to key easily to Eucinetus terminalis LeConte (now under genus Nycteus?). In any case, another new species for BugGuide :) Note "wrinkled" elytra transverse stria (and red tips). Some photos of the type available from MCZ here

came to UV light
