Pseudanostirus triundulata 1

12th June, 2008. Found in a field near the Edmonton river valley.

Small, fast and pretty. These 3 words describe this beetle and its genus perfectly. I didn't realise it was a click beetle at the time, it was only until I looked at my photos on the internet I noticed the typical pointed pronotum and circle spot.

---Need more information!!-----


Adults are around 6mm - 7mm
