Thanks Boris, I never noticed those groves on the front tibia. At least they are on the outside surfaces. And good to hear from you - for a while I'd thought maybe we'd lost you :(

Moved from Beetles.

Hi Tim, I´m still a constant visitor here - but probably others are faster than me in commenting your insects?

I have tried to key your beetle with Fall(1905), and arrived to the conclusion that above sp. is the one more likely than others. Pretty unsafe, though . . .

Tricorynus sp.
I´m sure, because this guy/girl has bisulcate front tibiae, only found in this genus.
The number of spp. so far north will be limited, but species ID may be really difficult nontheless. I´ll try one day ...

Gee, we should sign this guy up for the Olympic diving team:-) Sorry.

Boris will probably know more.
