Small Carion Beetle - Catops

Small Carion Beetle - Catops
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
May 27, 2006
Size: 3.7mm

Moved from Prionochaeta opaca.

more likely Catops
Prionochaeta has very long hind tibial spurs, and it looks like this guy has short spurs. Catops seems the more likely genus here. I kinda feel the same way about the other picture in this genus as well.
