BEETLES OF EASTERN NORTH AMERICA: FIRE-COLORED BEETLE
By Arthur V. Evans
The fire-colored beetle Neopyrochroa femoralis (LeConte) is easily distinguished from the only other large pyrochroid in eastern North America, N. flabellata (Fabricius), by its black and orange legs. The male has branched antennae and lacks a horn on its head. Adults are found under bark or at lights at night in spring and summer. This species occurs from Ontario and Quebec south to Georgia, west to eastern Nebraska and Texas.
