Cool bug!
The antennae make me think of Diptera, but the short wings seem wrong for that? Do you have a size estimate? Hope someone knowledgable can help you out!

 
It was between 1/16 and 1/8".

Just found this information and posted it to another picture ...

either

Pissonotus piceus http://bugguide.net/node/view/156851/bgimage
but way out of range as far as BugGuide goes but looks like a match.

-or-

Pissonotus marginatus http://bugguide.net/node/view/91482/bgimage
also out of range...

Or is it just something possibly some not found on BugGuide yet?

I don't suppose you have this book? :)
