Tenebrionidae - Eleodes hispilabris

Tenebrionidae - Eleodes hispilabris
Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
August 3, 2008
Size: about 1/2"
It looks a lot like some pictures I found of the Harpalus froelichi, but that species is supposed to be only in Europe, not Colorado Springs, CO.

Moved, E.hispilabris...

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

can be moved to Eleodes page

No, Tenebrionidae
maybe a spec. of Eleodes

Thanks for the ID.
I'm starting to think that the more practice I get in identifying these things, the more likely I am to get sidetracked into the wrong identification. Maybe because I'm a beginnner.
But it's still fun to try.
