060212Beetle1 - Uloma retusa

060212Beetle1 - Uloma retusa
Hillsborough County, Florida, USA
June 2, 2012
Size: ~1cm

Per Michael Thomas:
"It is Uloma retusa. It turns out we have had it from the southeast coast for several years. Yours was the first from the west coast and the first of the red-pronotum color form."

Moved tentatively... new US record, eh?
Moved from Ulomini.

From Warren Steiner
"I'll bet this is Uloma retusa, but we'll need a dissected male to confirm." According to Warren, this is a widespread Neotropical species.

If you can get the specimen to me, I'll get it to Warren. Click on my name to get my contact information.

Moved tentatively... stumped! let's wait for the experts
but for the color scheme, both striking and unfamiliar, i could have unscrupulously call it Uloma... hope you saved the specimen.
i'm definitely missing something here (the old faithful BCA doesn't help, either)

Moved from Beetles.

I did keep this one.
