Limnichoderus ovatus (LeConte)
Det. M. A. Quinn, 2012

Coll. at lights during BG Gathering_2012
Spmn deposited in the TAMUIC

Moved tentatively
Moved from Limnichini. ovatus is in this genus, not Eulimnichus

Crystal thinks this looks more like Physemus
[pers. comm.]

Yes, like Physemus, but out of range...
Physemus minutus LeC. recorded from CA, AZ, and TX (1)

Per known distributions, might be:
Limnichoderus seriatus (Casey), LA, SC-FL (STL) - page at (2)

Unfortunately, Eler (2012) doesn't treat Limnichidae in his "Checklist of the Water Beetles of Florida" (3)
