Dendrocharis? - Dendrocharis flavicornis

Dendrocharis? - Dendrocharis flavicornis
Midway, Bullock County, Alabama, USA
June 20, 2008
I believe this is a species of Dendrocharis - but which one?

Re-evaluated my determination
After re-evaluated my determination on these series of images, I am not ashamed to being incorrect on my identification from time to time, and this is a good example. In preparation of my world revision of Dendrocharis, I found two really good features - that black bald spot on the top of the head and small circular patches of setae on the pronotum that's akin to eye spots are diagnostic features associated with Dendrocharis flavicornis as seen in these images.

I believe.....
I have a name for the eucnemid in question. Based on the evenly dispersed hairs on the abdominal sterna and elytra being even, I identified the eucnemid as Dendrocharis inexspectata Muona

 
thanks again, Robert
so what's its known range as of today?

 
The known range for the species.....
so far includes Alabama, Florida, Texas and Virginia. I will be working to add any info for the group next week, including a key.

 
awesome.
impressively vast range for a beast once presumed to be FL endemic

heavens what a gorgeous thing
hope Dr Otto gives us a name
