Middleburg, Black Creek Ravines Conservation Area, Clay County, Florida, USA

Size: 5.8mm
Light sheet. Didn't even know I had collected this guy until looking under the scope. I immediately thought
Bemb*idion, but couldn't come to grips with the keys or guide pages. Throwing it to the experts.
Are the elytral tags a type of fungus or parasite??? Carabids really give me a fit!!!!

Moved
Moved from Badister notatus.

Nice one
Moved from Ground Beetles. I think they are fungus, but I'm not really sure.

 
what a neat bugger...
the stuff on elytra: reminds me of phoretic mite attachment gear --there must be a term for it, too...
