Comb-clawed Beetle - Capnochroa fuliginosa
Stow, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
July 2, 2005
Size: about 12mm
Is this in the Alleculinae genus?

Tenebrionidae: Alleculinae: Capnochroa fuliginosa
This is the other large Alleculine in our area, Capnochroa fuliginosa, based on the short (barely protruding) basal pronotal angles.

Thanks Donald

That's what it looks like to me. I've reared quite a few of these from larvae.

for the confirmation. That's what I thought it was.
