Very nice photo
I just included these guys in a blog about Euphoria. I got good images of the species, but not on this very typical leaf litter where the males are looking for females that may be in the ground. would you allow me to use your photo (full references) in my blog, replacing the one where the beetle is sitting on the rock?

Thanks Margarethe
Sure you can use it in your blog. Did you see the flight shot of the same E.fulgida from Bisbee?

Moved from Beetles.

E. fulgida, yes
