    September 2022 the entomology department received a voicemail from Christian Centa in Doylestown OH. He said seeing a mating pair of burying beetles in his backyard trying to bury a mouse carcass. He was aware of the rarity of the Burying beetles, recorded the scene without disturbing them, and sent me the videos.
