Helophorus grandis? - Helophorus grandis

Helophorus grandis? - Helophorus grandis
Middlebury, Addison County, Vermont, USA
April 25, 2012
Size: 6.5mm
Found at the same spot as the Helophorus grandis I found last year.

Moved from Water Scavenger Beetles.
Thanks Tim.

I agree w/ Helophorus grandis
Based on the large size and the evident scutellar striae in elytral interval 1.. The specimen you sent me earlier matches what is seen here.

for me please.

Got it
It's yours Don.

the size is right, but it's a notoriously tough group
...and there well may be multiple spp. living in the same puddle!
again, Don should be able to tell
