Hypnoidus sp.

15th May, 2008

These click beetles are quite different to others, and can be found under large rocks. Some areas have hundreds of individuals that can be found by upturning rocks and searching deep in the grass, other areas may have one or a few individuals in a year. There is apparently 3 species of these click beetles in America and 8 species worldwide. Larvae can be found in short grass and mosses. -----Need some more information!-----

SizeEdit

Adults are 4-7mm in length.

FeedingEdit

Larvae feed on moss. Adults??

Finding Ground click beetlesEdit

After hundreds of looking under rocks using the Rock searching technique I have only seen this once, it was under the same rock as 2 weevils This rock was on the edge of a Flat meadow habitat.
