- Nudobius luridipennis Casey (fig. 13): N. luridipennis
(7.5-8.2 mm), like other staphylinids, are slender and elongate with
very short elytra (usually only as long as the elytra are wide). The
antennae are beadlike and medium length. It should be noted that there
are other species of staphylinids associated with the SPB that, although
quite common, are yet undescribed.
