Trixagus dermestoides (Linnaeus, 1766) This Trixagus dermestoides was either &quot;ducking&quot; or running about too fast to focus ... not the nicest posture, but at least I got some shots of the head/eyes in to make ID possible ;o)<br />

      1. Thanks quys ... it's still always a disappointment when you just don't get the details you want/need nice and sharp. Fighting with a 0.9mm beetle at the moment that I need to get a reticulate structure of the elytra in focus for ... and it's a moving target ... *frustration* :-( Posted 5 months ago
