Cliptophagidae? - Typhaea stercorea
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
July 9, 2006
Size: 3 - 3.1 mm
The semi-recumbent setae on this clipped-antennaed beetle looked a little like that of a hairy fungus beetle but might also belong to a well-groomed sil*ken fungu*s beetle (asterisks to keep the #@%&*^! search function from showing this image when searches are done on those names). It might be asking too much to put a name on this one. Antennae are pretty important in ID work.
