A new study by Erwin and Zamorano reviews the Neotrpical Lachnophorini, which includes the enigmatic species pictured below. The image was taken by myself on our lab trip to Costa Rica. We were all collecting on a rock face seep for hydrophilids and I captured the imaging thinking, “oh, pretty carabid.” Later the image made its round to Terry and was able to contribute to his recent pub.
Below, Andrew and Crystal are collecting at the seep. I doubt carabids were collected.
