Pleasing fungus beetle - 8/3/07

Add another species to the Bugstock list: Megalodacne heros: "Pleasing fungus beetle":

I found this while Travis and I were searching the bottom area near the front pasture in the dark; looking for dung to feed my beetles. I spotted the end of it poking out from under a bracket fungi. We also drove up to Big L but did not find very much. We did find a Phileurus truncatus as we were leaving.
