Malthinus flaveolus


This is one small and pretty beetle at 4.5-5.5mm (1/8-1/4in) long and is difficult to find in the field. This one was attracted to my moth trap. Double-click for a closer look.

  1. Another nice photo with great detail. What is the material it, and the wasp in the other post, are sitting on? Some sort of moss?
