rove life cycle - Sepedophilus cinctulus
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
April 20, 2008
Size: about 4 mm
This was one of two Sepedophilus I found under pine bark, a male and female as it turned out. They shared the underbark habitat with some golden ants that were tending not only their larvae (one visible in this image) but some pale aphids.
I kept all in a sealed container loaded with bark pieces.
