Pedilus - Pedilus lugubris

Pedilus - Pedilus lugubris
Medford, (~25 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
May 19, 2008
Size: ~5.2 mm
I've never seen one of these before, but the emarginate eyes, unique body shape, and "attenuated" elytra tips certainly rule out a lot of other possibilities. From the keys, I believe this is P. lugubris. Corrections welcome :)
