Moved from Atomaria.

Cryptophagidae: Atomaria sp.
I think.

 
Another new genus!
Thanks, Don. Moved to guide page - I think :-)

 
Hm...
...it should be Atomaria (s.str.) nigrirostris STEPHENS (A. fuscicollis MANNERHEIM).

Atomaria (s. str.)
Hi Jens,
How can you be certain that this is A (s. str.). nigrirostris on the basis of these photographs? There are many Nearctic and Palaearctic species in Atomaria (s. str.) that differ from one another by very minute characters. I'm not sure that it is possible to identify this species with certainty on the basis of these photos, which are not that clear.

 
Thank you, Jens.
There are two Atomaria listed for New Hampshire, A. pat*ens and A. vesper*tina. This would make three.
