Beetle - Priognathus monilicornis

Beetle - Priognathus monilicornis
Antrim, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
June 21, 2011
Size: 6.2mm
I found this one on foliage in the woods.

cool. must be it, maybe a petite male?
D&A cite size 8-11 mm, but wild variation can be expected in saproxylic beetles. hope Don sees it and confirms.

Moved from Beetles.

Priognathus monilicornis
I'll send it off to Don, and see if he can confirm it.



Does have more of a distinct Priognathus monilicornis look about it. Please wait for confirmation, but fantastic image of this beast!

Priognathus monilicornis
It does look like a good possibility. I noticed the one from Oregon doesn't have the same rounded pronotum as this or my other one. Is that just geographic variation?
