Callidiellum rufipenne Callidiellum rufipenne Callidiellum rufipenne

Moved from Tetropium.

Not Tetropium, but rather Callidiellum...
This is the introduced Callidiellum rufipenne. Adults are variable in color and the other images on BG show specimens that are not this extensively red.

The heavy punctation and long setae of the elytra in this specimen was a giveaway - Tetropium have relatively smooth, glabrous elytra.
