Flat-golden-elongate - Catogenus rufus

Flat-golden-elongate - Catogenus rufus
Derry, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, USA
May 13, 2004
Size: 3 - 6 mm probably

Reminds me of Silvanidae. Found under bark?

Don't recall
But I was stripping a lot of bark at that time. How do you feel about Catogenus rufus in Passandridae?

Does look very similar
It does look very similar. I do think Catogenus rufus is usually more, well, rufus but maybe this is a color variation. The large head and beveled pronotum seem to match.
