scientific name    Danosoma brevicorne    

Boreomontane forests.

Adults have been collected from mid March to early September.

The tarsal claws lack setae. The pronotosternal sutures are situated at the bottom of a deep groove for the reception of antennae, and the hypomeron lacks grooves for the reception of the protarsus. Setae are short, broad and scale-like; dorsal setae are a mixture of pale yellow, brown and black setae forming a mottled pattern; ventral setae are pale yellow. The hind angles of the pronotum are convergent apically. The posterior half of the pronotum bears a deep longitudinal groove, while the anterior half of the pronotum bears a pair of shallower pits. Length 11.5-16 mm.
