Hydrophilidae_1263 - Enochrus
Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, USA
May 31, 2008
Size: 6.5-7mm
Something in Hydrophilidae perhaps? Some of the Enochrus examples look similar.

E. cinctus vs. E. consortus
Need more views (ventral, lateral of mesosternal lamina) to tell which one.


Enochrus is correct, i think
could you pls specify the size? (the fabric suggests ca. 7 mm -- am i right?)


great -- thnx! pls move to genus

Thank you
Sorry I neglected the critical info.

Moved from Beetles.

Right family.
I agree with the family placement and am moving the image there.
