  1. First in this family, very cool! Posted one month ago
    1. Ferdy, I also "created" a species, but under the name Hylecoetus dermestoides (following Fauna Europaea and the Dutch species register), but it would seem that Elateroides is the currently accepted genus name after all. Can you merge the two species please? I'll add more to the description later ... Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
      1. Done! Posted one month ago
        1. Thanks Ferdy - sorry 'bout that, should have done my homework before adding the species.
