The male and female of this species seem to have different color patterns.

Moved from Dalopius.

Dalopius vagus Brown
Without seeing the genitalia there can always be some uncertainty, but I'd say with 99% certainty that these are both Dalopius vagus Brown. The colour dimorphism here is not sexual, but simply reflects great phenotypic variability in this species. I've seem males and females that looked like both of these individuals, and every color gradation in between.

Moved from Click Beetles.

Dalopius... i daresay
