cowling-pronotum beetle - Dialytes striatulus

cowling-pronotum beetle - Dialytes striatulus
Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
July 31, 2005
Size: 4 mm
This small beetle's head was tucked back into its pronotum so that, in some positions at least, only a portion of its eyes showed beyond the anterior edge of the pronotum. In this sense it reminds me of a bostrichid.
