Plateros

Plateros
Parkwood, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
June 17, 2005
Size: 8 mm
I captured this beetle flying over a road in a wooded suburban neighborhood. It was chilled and posed. My best guess in looking at keys in Arnett et al. (1) and in Dillon (2) is that it is Plateros. See comments below.
