Mycetophagidae? - Mycetophagus

Mycetophagidae? - Mycetophagus
Jemez River East Fork, Sandoval County, New Mexico, USA
September 18, 2012
Size: ~4mm
A bit better image? Near Jemez River, East Fork under bark of dead fallen small tree.

another cool beast... and disappointing photo :/
i wonder if this is M. distinctus Hatch... whatever it might be.
any chance you could try to obtain sharper pics? i wanna show this beast around, it's really intriguing.

Moved from Mycetophagus.

I'll try to get a better photo
any specific angle shot or just a better photo from same angle?

antenna is very important, esp. the apical half
seeing the pronotal punctation and lateral margin, too

Replaced with another photo
Hope this helps out...

much better! thanks, Mark
