General notes: (about the organism that will not change over time)

  • 5-5-5 tarsal formula. Antennae have 3-lobed ends. Non-metallic, scaly leathery elytra which do not completely cover abdomen. 3 spines on 1st femur; 3 spines on 2nd femur; 3 spines on 3rd femur. 5 underside abdominal segments. Olive-colored scales over black-colored body. Head-wards pointing spine present on underside between second pair of legs.



  • Beetle missing terminal tarsae on its second right leg. When carried around in a falcon tube throughout the day (I'm sorry, beetle), the beetle expelled brownish liquid, perhaps in defense. Beetle is an eager climber but is gentle and doesn't try to fly away. (microhabitat: Underneath a leaf of a shrub, date: 5 July 2010, obs code: Obs35)
