Limnebius aridus Perkins

Animas Limnebius Minute Moss Beetle (Limnebius aridus)

The species of this genus usually live in the bank substrate along mountain streams; they require certain particle- and gap sizes and are therefore very sensitive to soil silting.  


The Animas Limnebius Minute Moss Beetle was described in 1980, it is only known from a single collection that was made in 1952 on the Double Adobe Ranch in the Animas Mountains in Hildago County in New Mexico, USA.  

The biology is or was probably identical to that of other species of the genus.
