Cryptophagid? - Henoticus

Cryptophagid? - Henoticus
Las Cruces, Doña Ana County, New Mexico, USA
Size: 2 - 2.1 mm
Found under (probably) pecan firewood bark. Seems to have longer setae (hairs) than crytophagids I've found in New Hampshire. Died before I could get a good photograph of it.

Moved from Cryptophagus.

Moved from Beetles.

Yes - genus Cryptophagus, with little doubt.


I have more doubt...
...and I think, it is a member of the genus Henoticus.


Thank you, Jens.
Moved to new location.

Thank you, Boris.
I've moved it.
