Great pics
for such a tiny subject. This little guy is almost as cute as the springtail you found a few days ago!

Thanks, it sure was cute. Not very cooperative though! Despite the cold, it scuttled away almost every time I hovered over it with the camera!

Moved from Trogiomorpha.

Sure looks like
Lepinotus reticulatus to me. Amazing that this critter is out and about in January in British Columbia!Beautiful shot! You can see all the hairs.

ID confirmed by E.L. Mockford:
"Lepinotus sp., probably L. reticulatus Enderlein."


I was surprised to see it too, especially considering how cold it's been the last few weeks.

awesome series! nice bug, too --goes straight to Dr Mockford
