Moved from Beetles.

Nice find.

Diaperis maculata

Looks more like D. nigronota.

hahaha, yes it is
you know Skip, I was going through beetles quickly this morning and I thought, maybe I should double-check this one. Then I was like, nah it's got to be the usual D. maculata. I have been focusing heavily on the clickers and only doing quick dets on non-clickers. But yes this is D. nigronotata. Thanks for correcting!

I've only seen it in collections. Wonder what it feeds on.
