Welcome to ELEO - Pinacate Beetle Project
The Pinacate beetle Eleodes is endemic to western North America. Our website will be developed to assist taxonomists and end users to identify over 100 species of Eleodes using high definition photographs, keys, original taxonomic descriptions and geographical maps. Presently the ELEO site has limited functionality. If you are interested in helping build the ELEO site please contact us: mcebach [-at-] asu [-dot-] com.
