Enoclerus lunatus

Enoclerus lunatus
Middleburg, Clay County, Florida, USA
May 25, 2011
Size: 6mm
I am comfortable with this genus but I have no key to species...

You missed my question before, do you have a natural photo, or can you use the beetle to take another shot? It would be better if we had an actual photo with natural un-doctored colors instead of filling the bug with pepto pink.

check this out

pg 62 on this link...

One day I'll have a much more
One day I'll have a much more cleaned up version of this published. But the Enoclerus from my thesis are pretty straightforward.

The (1) indicates E.lunatus in Clay County...I have no references for it....


i strongly suspect you meant Enoclerus...
[that other one is a hydrophilid]
hope it's E. lunatus [would be great!] --but let's wait for the experts

my bad....
def Clerinae......sorry

Tip - always use cut-and-paste when possible. Enochrus is not a clerid.
