believed this to be an undescribed genus and species.

Thanks Don,

Gives me all the more incentive to go back next year. It was a fantastic spot, even so late (?) in the season. Beat a lot of trees around this area, but only came up with the one. Maybe if I go a tad earlier next time.

Do you have any dates for existing specimens?

Looks like one of the species
Looks like one of the species I'm working on from Floyd Werner's collection...I'll check it out.

awesome -- thanks

now isn't that sweet...
thanks, Jeff and Don -- great stuff.

Looks somewhat similar to Xylophilus bicolor here. I have no idea where the species currently resides (genus) or what the range is. Looks close though.

would be nice--
although i suspect the species may have been reassigned to some other genus since
