Microrhagus audax Horn - Microrhagus opacus

Microrhagus audax Horn - Microrhagus opacus
Bell's Ferry Rd., Ocmulgee Flood Plain, Wheeler County, Georgia, USA
Size: 4.0 mm
The species was collected by R. Morris on May/June, 2000 using a flight intercept trap.

This picture was taken with automontage system. The actual montaging done with CombineZM.

Moved from Microrhagus audax.

for reasons unfathomable, i find this one especially cute...
Robert, is the capture date available for this one? And thanks a lot for posting this impressive collection on BG!
I would also consider adding collector names -- up to you, of course.

the capture date is...
May/June, 2000. For some reason, whenever the capture date show multiple months or even days; will not post it at all. There are many specimens from the 29 I submitted last night which have a date or month range. This is an issue I feel that needs to be addressed to validate these submissions to bugguide. I will add the collector names to the images for bugguide later today. The guide page has been updated and quite impressed that only 12 species remains to complete the virtual collection of the family for this site. It is a cute little beetle. :)
