*Not* 4Uloma pupa - Centronopus calcaratus

*Not* 4Uloma pupa - Centronopus calcaratus
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
In this view you can see two larvae, the pupa, the cast larval skin of the pupa and the rolled oats and puppy food they were fed. Several larvae appear to be nearing pupation, having shortened and become less mobile.

Not 4Uloma!
I had smugly determined these immature tenebrionids to be 4Uloma because they looked (to me) like the larvae I so often find in the same rotting logs with 4Uloma 4impressa. I've learned that, while some tenebrionid larvae differ greatly in appearance from 4Uloma, others are very similar to 4Uloma.

The adult beetle that emerged from a pupa that formed from one of the like-looking tenebrionid larvae I kept in the same rearing cubicle differs substantially from 4Uloma 4impressa, and the other larvae with it that I thougt were nearing pupation have *yet* to pupate, so they might not be of the same species.

Names of other species deliberately altered to prevent this posting automatically showing up under that category.
