Trachyscelis aphodioides Latreille - Trachyscelis aphodioides

Trachyscelis aphodioides Latreille - Trachyscelis aphodioides
Size: 3 mm
Although this European species has been reported from beaches of several southeastern U.S. states, it apparently no longer occurs in the continental U.S. (see Steiner, 2004, Coleop. Bull., 58(3):335–343). Trachyscelis flavipes Melsheimer is a junior synonym. This specimen was collected at Punta Vacia Talega, Puerto Rico.

What do you call that,
an E-vasion or EXvasion?


looks more like aegialiodes, imho ))
Moved from Diaperinae.

exactly what I was thinking when I first saw it - an Aegialia mimic ;-)
