Trox foveicollis ? - Trox terrestris

Trox foveicollis ? - Trox terrestris
Middleburg, Black Creek Ravines Conservation Area, Clay County, Florida, USA
May 5, 2012
Size: 5.5mm
Well, here is the tail. Now I'm even more confused. Of all the drawings on pg 65 of (1), it looks most like
T. scaber or T. unistriatus, but then the key characters don't fit. I'll leave this to the smart guys and if I
find any more, will be more than happy to leave at the genus level. I probably damaged it when removing from the
little guy.

Moved from Hide Beetles.

looks ok
Seeing the shape of the median lobe will be helpful. Its somewhat obscured by the angle and the placement of the lateral lobes. It might be more visible flipped over or by spreading the lobes apart. Probably near terrestris, but need to see that median lobe clearly.

Brad we are going to have to leave this at the genus level, because
I damaged the median lobe when trying to get a better pic. Little sub
1mm thingy's don't do well w/my fat fingers. Sorry. Tks
