Bethylid - Dissomphalus - female

Bethylid - Dissomphalus - Female
Fayette County, Indiana, USA
October 8, 2007
Size: ~ 2 mm
A small wingless member of Bethylidae, berlesed from a well rotted log. Looks much like Tom's image here.

Moved from Bethylidae. Based on Howard Evans's monograph of NA Bethylidae, this matches with genus Dissomphalus. I think its D. xanthopus, but it's a tough call.
