Hydrophilidae? - Enochrus

Hydrophilidae? - Enochrus
Elkland, Missouri, Dallas County, Missouri, USA
July 18, 2010
Size: 3.5 mm
Another Hydrophilid, unless I'm again confused about Dytiscids. Came to lights this summer.
There are at least five very similar looking beetles, but each is somewhat different. I'm trying to be careful not to post the same species.

Moved from ID Request.

you got it right; check out Enochrus

Wonderful - thanks! Now I will step very carefully through the remaining Hydrophilids (and Dytiscids) from this summer to make sure I don't duplicate the posting. I probably have four more, at least . . .

Over 30 years in Modesto, CA, I had collected quite a variety of Coleoptera around my house, which was in the city. Now with 8 years near Elkland, Mo, there are many times the species, because I live in the country, with woods, prairie, and a pond on our 60 acres.
