How to use "Sabinea carinalis" in context?
Sabinea is a rather uncommon carrion beetle that is endemic to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and Oregon. This beetle is relatively large for its genus, measuring four to five inches long with a robust body and long antennae. Adult sabine beetles are dark brown, with a distinctive black saddle across their backs. Their larvae rather resemble small moths, with a light brown body and a long ebony-black proboscis.
The sabinea carrion beetle is an important food item for several California predators, including the short-eared owl, the fisher, and the California ground squirrel.
