Mycotrupes "push-up" - Mycotrupes retusus
Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina, USA
October 13, 2007
Size: 12mm
A Mycotrupes "push-up". The surface sand dries quickly - the moister, dark sand excavated by the beetle indicates recent surface activity. By tommorrow the mound will be dried out like the surrounding area.
