scientific name    Anthaxia inornata    

habitat
Conifer forests.

seasonality
May, June and July.

identification
This dull black beetle in at first glance, is similar to M. accuminata. These beetles may be distinguished by their nearly straight pronotal base and lack of metathoracic sensory pits. Separating the Anthaxia species is subtle, as the pronotal pits may be somewhat shallow on some specimens and could easily be confused with A. aeneogaster.

life history
In Alberta adults are commonly found on flowers, in particular those of rose and dandelion.

conservation
Common.

diet info
Breeds in conifers (Bright 1987). In Alberta adults have been associated with lodgepole pine and spruce.

range
Most of North America north of Mexico (Bright 1987).
