Eocene Green River Undescribed Beetle
Undescribed Beetle (Coleoptera)
Green River Formation
Middle Eocene
Lincoln County, Wyoming
This is a very good large undescribed beetle from the 18 inch layer. The very front part of the head is missing but the thorax and abdomen have excellent preservation. The elytra are somewhat spread and the wings and delicate venation are visible. The specimen is part and counter-part. This may be a boring beetle of the family Buprestidae.
