Tiny black-eyed reddish beetle - Melanophthalma

Tiny black-eyed reddish beetle - Melanophthalma
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
September 16, 2005
Size: 1.8 mm
Came to UV lights, where it is a frequent visitor. The enlarged second antennal segment must be somewhat diagnostic for genus/species. Presumably same species as this:

Moved
Moved from Minute Brown Scavenger Beetles.
likely belongs here (compare genus page)

 
Thanks
for all the hard work you are doing on bugguide, Boris.

As you may know, I do not keep a traditional insect collection so I give away most of my specimens. Those who have been most helpful get preference. If there are any beetles I post that you would like me to set aside for you, please ask for them.

Latridiidae
Near Corticaria/Melanophthalma.

 
Thank you, Don.
