Hide Beetle

Post by Olympusman »

This is a ventral view of the head section of an Hide Beetle, probably genus Trox.
It is about 1 cm long and a yellow tan color. What interested me was the handlike antennae retracted under the head.


133 images stacked in Zerene Stacker. Swift 4X 0.10 160/.17 on an Olympus E-420 with an Olympus Zuiko OM 28mm f.35 relay lens.

The blue background was accomplished by sliding a paper house paint chip sample under the slide, freely available at local hardware stores.
