10 image montage - one of my first attempts, and I believe the "white edges were from some slight movements during taking the images (the beetle was so small that slight air currents were rocking it around).

It should be possible to identify this to species, but it isn't quite clear enough to see the form (if any) of the metasternal tubercles (should be visible in lateral view).

 
Thanks Don,
I'll try to shoot and post a lateral view of the metasterum area in a few days.
