Cercyon - Cercyon ustulatus

Cercyon - Cercyon ustulatus
Lafarge Lake, Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada
August 3, 2010
Size: 3.2 mm
Flushed out from mud along shore of lake; this one does not key out properly in Smetana's treatment of the Canadian fauna so any suggestions would be helpful.

Moved from Cercyon.

looks a lot like C. ustulatus (Preyssl.) to me
habitus
dunno if it's been recorded in NA, though --but you never know with those things, you've been getting tons of adventive stuff in your area anyway

 
Looks like it is
I somehow missed it in Smetana's key! It's in a different subgenus (Dicyrtocercyon) than the others. Previous records were from Quebec and ne. US. so it's a new record for west coast.

 
cool.
glad to be of assistance. consider adding subgenera (recommended :) or at least a list of NA spp assigned to subgenera on the info page

 
Subgenera added
:)

 
love it
now see if you can move any of the unsorted images to subgenera ))
