Forked Fungus Beetle - Bolitotherus cornutus - male

Forked Fungus Beetle - Bolitotherus cornutus - Male
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
December 9, 2006
Size: 12 - 13 mm
After extracting pupae from one rather beat-up conk I checked out another conk that had always felt too hard and solid to contain larvae. Well, that was then. Now the conk was rather spongy and pliable so I cracked it apart and found it was loaded with pupae, a few larvae, and several adults including this male that is absolutely covered with very tiny mites.
