Okay, thanks Boris.
Moved from Darkling Beetles.

I just fixed up the mealworms -
and realized, that you should rather move this one to Neatus tenebrio*ides, than to genus. N.picipes is unlikely to occur in North America.

cheers, Boris

I think, we can move it to genus Neatus, no?
:-)

comment on last question
Hi!
The species Tenebrio picipes Herbst,1797 is nowadays included in Neatus (unrecognized in nomina nearctica). The beetle on the pic looks just like it, but I can´t tell how to discriminate it from tenebroides.

regards, Boris

 
Hi Boris,
I think Don is right. We need to see the pronotal punctuation better to see whether it is tenebroides or something else.

Can't tell
It is in the Tenebrio area, but T. picipes isn't know from New Hampshire, and it is not molitor or obscura. Need to see the punctation on the dorsum better. I suspect Neatus tenebroides, but no guarantees.

 
I wondered recently
if it might be Neatus.
