Eucnemidae? - Rushia longula

Size: 6mm


Moved from Serropalpini.

Moved from Beetles.
Thanks Blaine. Looks like it's one I haven't seen before.

or maybe Hypulini???
maybe best to put at family level for now :) And you are right, it doesn't look at all familiar...

not Eucnemidae
looks like another serropalpine melandryid, but I'd have to snoop around some more. Don will probably recognize it readily.

my distant location in Sicily, it is familiar, and I think maybe Rush*ia longula, but not certain enough without checking the collection to say it with authority.

Rushia longula?
Don, I hope your vacation is all you expected it to be. I saved the specimen for you to check in the future.

and yes.
