Webb Canyon, ~2000 ft. elevation, Los Angeles County, California, USA

Size: 3.5 - 4 mm
Another one of my many pool rescues... I did my best to come up with a good match for this one and I thought it looked very similar to the teneb Gondwanocrypticus
, but I don't believe that genus exists in California. So, maybe one of the Platydema
species? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! (I do have some more images, so please let me know if there is a specific feature you need to see.)
Surrounding habitat is chaparral and mixed oak woodland.
