Sweden, June 26th
Size: 6 mm

Found on a very old moose carcass. Wings seemed malformed and it was only able to fly for shorter distances.

Any help with ID appreciated!

Nemopoda speiseri. No strongt postpronotal setae, no strong outer vertical setae, long series of strong spines ventrally on the fore femora. Nice! Please, add to the Gallery.

By the way, did you collect a specimen?

Awesome – thanks Paul! No, I didn't collect it I'm afraid.
