I've been trapping everything *but* the target beetles in my dung-baited pitfalls, including this handsomely-marked little sap beetle (nit = nitidulid).

Moved from Epuraea.

Epuraea peltoides = reliable ID

Thanks, Belov.


In Europe, we have . . .
. . . two species of Epuraea that look just like that. I googled pictures, and a drawing of E.peltoides from your fauna comes really close also. Should be that one!

cheers, Boris

can be safely placed in Epuraea anyway

Thanks, Boris.
I added name and question mark till Andew Cline sees it.

for me please. Can't find in collection. Looks familiar, may be a Stelidota of some sort, which are all out on loan to Andy Cline.

It's in the booze.
Some of them do like their alcohol :-)

I ran across it this morning as I cleaned out the "beetlarium" (I'm just not real certain about the proper spelling of that term :-) and saved it. Assuming it hasn't escaped, I'll pickle it for you. I haven't emailed Andy with this URL yet to get an ID. I was waiting till I posted a couple more nits so he could check them all out.
