Beetle 2040 - Monotoma

Beetle 2040 - Monotoma
Pymatuning Lake, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, USA
July 20, 2008
Size: 2.25 mm
Minute Brown Scavenger Beetle?

Moved from Monotoma bicolor.

Probably not M. bicolor
Possibly some of the poorly known things related to M. texana, but maybe also something else. Probably not bicolor though. Eyes are too big and thing angles are wrong.

parallela has been synonymized with bicolor
still, the ID is tentative

Moved from Monotoma parallela.

Page created
Made a page for this and filed it away. Nice photo

Monotoma parallela LeConte
pretty sure

Thank You
Should I ask for a new page to be created or move it to the genus level?

wait pls -- i've requested new pages
