Here's a nice beetle(s) I collected under dead logs with fungi present. At first blush I thought Leiodidae, but under the scope it looks more like Cryptophagidae (dense erect setae, lateral carina on prothorax, 3 segmented antennal club, etc). I'm thinking Henotiderus sp. (Crosimus)? Would enjoy any thoughts on this guy. Thanks, Ken Karns-Ohio
