small mushroom roves - Phanerota

small mushroom roves - Phanerota
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
July 23, 2008
Size: about 2.5 - 3 mm
This image shows pronotal punctation well. I note that, even accounting for up-curled abdomen, this individual is smaller and lighter colored than the others and I think there are several that met this description. Could we be looking at two species rather than mere intra-species diversity? One larva image also showed a possible difference, no "black tail" apparent. I think I will post that image for discussion.
