Beetle  - Nycteus infumatus Melandryidae ? - Nycteus infumatus

Moved from Eucinetus.

V appreciate your help, see you moved to different genus and it use to be eucinetus...thanks again.

Eucinetus infumatus...
Believe both the Eucinetus that are listed in Eucinetus are of this species. The below link has one from ubc, and both it and the one submitted by Lynette are a match but there is no species page for that species, can one be created?
Thanks Gary

nice... not sure which ones you've got up there; teneral?
Moved from Beetles.

Thank you V
My only other plate-thigh beetle is much darker, but I think this is a different species, not teneral...Thanks again.
