rove beetle - Neobisnius
Minniear Day Use Area, Del Puerto Canyon, Stanislaus County, California, USA
March 10, 2007
Size: 5mm

Moved from Neobisinus.

wrong spelling
Dear Joyce, maybe you could tell to an administrator, that the genus page is wrongly spelt:
Neobisnius (as Don wrote), instead of Neobisinus . . .

regards for the nice pic!


spelling fixed
Thanks Boris for pointing that out. I was able to fix it.

Neobisnius sp.
Thanks Don. Image moved.

Staphylininae: Neobisnius sp.
Looks like a Neobisnius to me.

NOT a paederine rove beetle? I wonder if there is mimicry going on here, given that paederines can excrete those inflamatory compounds....?
