Tiny Tiny Fungus Beetle - Malacocis brevicollis
Near Ruraldale, Upshur County, West Virginia, USA
February 15, 2006
Size: 1.7 mm
Probably my tiniest beetle photographed to date. A tripod set-up would have helped here, as well as some extra oomph to my macro lens.
I'm debating several families of small fungus beetles, but my best bet seems to be Minute Tree-Fungus Beetles. I'm posting three photos, possibly of different individuals, showing the species from different angles. One shows the antennae.
