J larvae adult - Mycetochara binotata

J larvae adult - Mycetochara binotata
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
February 14, 2008
Size: about 8 - 15 mm
I had taken some shots after these adults had completed coloring up, resulting in much more vivid colors. I'll have some detail shots also, maybe this weekend. (Frankly, if I were able to process and post all my beetle images *waiting* to be posted, bugguide would grow by tens of thousands of images and probably hundreds of species new to bugguide. It takes me about 10 to 20 times as long to clean up, adjust, crop, and post an image as it does to collect the beetle and photograph it. Consequently, most never make it to bugguide.)

Mycetochara binotata
Having just identified Tom's specimen as M. fove*ata, this one looks like the other species with red humeri - larger and with longish yellow setae on the pronotum.

 
Excellent! Thanks, Don!
I wonder if there is an all-black model in the genus. I had some similar-looking larvae mature, die and fall apart in a long-neglected rearing container that I should probably check again this evening. Their pieces were all black. There was one larva, apparently from a later batch, that had not matured at the time. I'd like to get some shots of the *whole* beetle.

 
The other
4-5 species are all black. Identifiable when in hand, but not so much fun.
