I'm glad there was at least one nice find in this batch. Now to find one of these in one of the northern New England states.

Hi Tom, Very glad you kept
Hi Tom,

Very glad you kept this! This is Sepedophilus frosti, a rather uncommon species known from eleven specimens at the time of its description in 1976. Unfortunately its already known from Massachusetts but this record is officially the northernmost known (you beat out Framingham).

Thanks again Tom, this specimen made the entire shipment worthwhile.

Adam, I got this one sweep netting low vegetation in the woods. I'll keep it for you to look at later.

Hard to say which species,
Hard to say which species,

Probably testaceus species group, these ones must be scoped nearly all the time (except the really obvious species).

Cheers,
Adam
