Calopteron teminale? - Caenia dimidiata

Calopteron teminale? - Caenia dimidiata
NW of Tupper Lake, St. Lawrence County, New York, USA
July 2, 2006
Size: 14mm
Is this Calopteron teminale?

I love lycids--how can you not get a kick out of a single family that's got both those great elytra and the absolutely ridiculous antennae?

Moved from Net-winged Beetles.

I don't think this is Calopteron terminale. Most likely it is in a different genus altogether.

Caenia dimidiata?
Not sure if I spelled that correctly, but that was the only other genus in that family with the branched antennae.

I can see the appeal
That is quite a hat!
