rove beetle a the GSL
I was checking for insects at the Great Salt Lake Marina
on this beautiful but cool day in February and found only
this one.  It was under 5 mm long.  I forgot my close-up camera,
so I didn't get a great shot, but I'm pretty sure it's Omalium
and possibly Omalium rivulare.   © Carol Davis 2-22-2021

I don't see rove beetles very often, so it's always
fun to find a new species.  © Carol Davis 2-22-2021
