Rove Beetle - Erichsonius rosellus

Rove Beetle - Erichsonius rosellus
Topsham, Orange County, Vermont, USA
May 22, 2013
Found in a sandy stream bank by splashing water on the sand.

Erichsonius rosellus Frank, female
Moved from Erichsonius. Tentatively ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Tom.

Key to these guys uses male aedeagus, so difficult to ID females. But narrowing down the possibilities, this should be either E. rosellus or E. alumnus, and I favor the former.

Two females sent, will select one as the photo-voucher.

a-a-ah! sorry about the lousy call.
Moved from Lathrobiina.
