so cool... how did i miss this one???
Moved from Fungus Weevils.

 
Question (always questions):
What possible explanation for those long, get-in-the-way, antennae? Or do we have a clue, yet?

 
no idea; many anthribid males sport ridiculously long antennae
..that make them look a lot like longhorns from a distance; must have something to do with olfactory communication, but it's just a guess

Check out Jeff's dorsal shot of Allandrus,just a guess
though,maybe in same genus?

 
very cool
