Moved from Eupsophulus.

thanks, Jason
Moved from Darkling Beetles.

I posted this one
because I see a difference between the earlier, very common Eusopholus sp. and these. These are much smaller, the elytra more sculpted and the legs not reddish but grey. I see this difference every year
So there may be 2 spp of Eusopholus at my black light

more details please
It may definitely be a species not yet in the guide. There are two spp. known in North America. Could you put "much smaller" into more absolute terms? Also, are there rows of erect setae (more than 2x as long as the confused, appressed setae) on the elytra?

there are straight setae check out this one:
size around 9 to 12 mm.

Eupsophulus brevipennis Casey
Thanks for the details! New species for the guide.
