Anobiidae - Sculptotheca puberula Anobiidae - Sculptotheca puberula

Moved from Protheca puberula.

Now in another genus
transferred to Sculpto*theca by Espanol ca. 20 years ago. May not matter here, because American standards are followed, which did nor recognize the change yet.
The species hispida still is in Pro*theca.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was using an old source as my key. This has indeed been moved to Sculptotheca.

New images
From original image:

"Not Calymmaderus
Subfamily is o.k., but it is not a Calymmaderus. In that genus, the last two antennal segments are almost fused, in your specimen they are obviously free.

The photos are of too poor quality to safely tell the correct genus, but I think it rather MIGHT be a Protheca than anything else.

cheers, Boris"

This has 9 antenomeres placing it as P. puberula.

Moved from Protheca hispida.
