Rove Beetle - Neohypnus

Rove Beetle - Neohypnus
Bethlehem, Grafton County, New Hampshire, USA
April 25, 2006
Size: 7mm

Moved from Xantholinini.

Staphylinidae: Paederinae: Xantholinini
Probably an easy one if I consult the collection.

Can't find in collection
Can't seem to find it. Don't suppose you kept it? If you photograph more Xantholinines, you should probably hold on to the specimens for me - they are really difficult to place to genus from photos.

Didn't keep it
would another picture showing a dorsal view and a good look at the head help? I'll try and keep any others I come across.
