Republic, Ferry County, Washington, USA
May 17, 2010
Size: ~15mm long
A medium size elateroid with distinctive red marking found on arrowleaf balsamroot in the afternoon.


thinking Limonius
a few PNW species with this color pattern and the pronotal shape doesnt look like Corymbitodes to me.

makes sense, thanks
pls move wherever you see fit

Moved tentatively, but feeling good about the ID
Moved from Prosterninae.

Moved from Beetles.

i so hope somebody will be able to nail this one
looks distinctive
