One the first night at my patio black light, one of those rarely seen prionids, Tragosoma pilosicorne made an appearance. This is only the second individual of this species that I have seen here.
|Onitis alexis. One of several dug from burrows under the cow dung. An introduced species originally from southern Europe and Africa, deliberately released in California to control cow dung accumulation. Specimen collected by A. Evans.|
|Body length around 10 mm (so small).|
|Macrosiagon sp. (likely Macrosiagon cruenta). Specimen collected by A. Evans.|
