Since your observation, I have noticed the same beetle in a photo I took this spring near Phellinus rimosus. I will add it to a previous observation later.
spring 2010, we had a bumper crop of G. tsugae here in PA. I think this may have been part of the reason why there is a bumper crop of “pleasing fungus beetles” this year. This spring, these critters have apparently consumed virtually ALL of the G. tsugae along the falls trail in Rickett’s Glen State Park, an area where one generally finds lots of these mushrooms.
they look like the invasion of the flying saucers!
