Beetle - Dendroides canadensis

Beetle - Dendroides canadensis
Powhatan County, Virginia, USA
Size: 9mm long [body only]
Collected in June 2005

Moved from Dendroides.

Wow, What Great Antennae

Closest match in the Dillons seems to be Dendroides cyanipennis, an under bark species.

Can you give us some more data? Month? Habitat type? Approximate size?
