Elonus gruberi: A new species of Ant-like Leaf Beetle from the United States.

Ant-like Leaf Beetles, Aderidae, are a widespread but little-studied group of Beetles found across the globe. The adults, which in some species resemble Ants are found on the underside of the leaves of trees and shrubs, while the larvae are found in rotting wood, leaf litter, and sometimes the nests of social Insects. The group contains about a thousand species, the majority of which are found in the tropics.

In a paper publshed in the journal Zootaxa on 26 October 2017, Nicolas Gompel of the Fakultät für Biologie at Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München, describes a new species of Ant-like Leaf Beetle from the United States, as part of a review of the North American genus Elonus.

The new species is named Elonus gruberi, in honour of Jeff Gruber, a friend of Nicolas Gompel, for his work collecting Beetles in North America. These Beetles range from 2.6 to 3.4 mm in length and are a dark matte brown in colour, with orange markings on the wing-cases. They are found in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin states.

  3. SCAMMERS DRAINED AND RUINED ME FINANCIALLY AND LEFT ME HOMELESS BUT THANKS TO PROSPER LOAN PLC:- prosperloanplc@gmail.com or call +1(205) 224-8709 .

    Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, I trusted the words of those fake loan lenders without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan i sold my car defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life has been piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already. Until last week a very close friend told me that she got a loan from PROSPER LOAN PLC that i should also give it a try. Not having an option I contacted them with a heart full of sorrow and skepticism i shyly follow their procedures comply to their policy, I was waiting for the bad news like every other loan company i contacted gave me then i receive a credit alert that my bank account has been credited with $250,000 which i initially applied for instantly tears of joy roll out of my eyes because I never believe it will come through. Whenever you are in need of any kind of loan don't be a prey and contact the one true loan company via their information. Email: prosperloanplc@gmail.com or Call +1(205) 224-8709. And receive your financial breakthrough.
