Aulicus monticola Aulicus monticola

Moved from Aulicus femoralis.

gorgeous beetle, perfectly shot --
--but i'm not at all sure it belongs on this page (diff. sp., most likely)

opinion of Jacques Rifkind:
"This looks more like Aulicus monticola Gorham to me. I think it's likely it is, and probably represents a new state record for the US (previously known from AZ, TX and several states in Mexico)."

Thank you for the identification clarification...

I would agree.
Moving to species page as it would appear we have a match...I'll take the heat if I'm wrong:-)

Very nice shot. I love the pubescence.
