MOST RECENT

No.74 - I found a lot of these beetles in rotting logs at RSPB The Lodge yesterday. This is the splendidly titled Nalassus laevioctostriatus; a member of the Tenebrionidae family (Darkling beetles). It's the first beetle species I've seen congregating in groups, I saw up to ten in one log. I also saw some lovely red teneral specimens. It took me a while to ID it, because it looks like a ground beetle. I literally went through the beetle section in Paul Brock's field guide page by page, until I found it, then cross referenced it with photos online. I've found The Watford Coleoptera Group (www.thewcg.org.uk) really useful for photos and referencing. Many thanks to @danasawusrex for checking my photos last night and confirming species and teneral variation, as I still wasn't 100% sure I'd gone down the right taxonomic avenue with this little enigma!
