rove beetle - Habrocerus capillaricornis

rove beetle - Habrocerus capillaricornis
Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
March 27, 2010
Size: 2.7mm
Found in leaf litter.

Moved from Sepedophilus.

This poor fellow is Habroceru
This poor fellow is Habrocerus (Habrocerinae), and although 2.7 is a little short for it, I don't see microsculpture in the middle of the pronotum - so this would be capillaricornis. The other, similar species is uncommon south of the boreal but could turn up.


ah Adam
you just wont let me win with these staphs, will ya? :-) hehe That's OK; I will apprecraite your help when I start posting them!

Moved from Rove Beetles.
Sepedophilus looks good. Too bad this guy wasn't very active anymore.

Would be my guess, Tom.
