Ground Darkling beetle



About 25mm body length. All black. Lines of pitting on elytra.


Exploring a wall at night at the local school.


Thanks Stephen Thorpe - Tenebrionidae...
Promethis sp. in Tasmania although pitting seems deeper
Alobates pennsylvanica in the US... hmm these ground dwelling black Tenebs are very numerous.
