Maybe something in Philonthus, or not. Might the friend be a mite?

Yes, Robert, the 'friend' is very likely a mite.
Probably a phoretic mite in the Mesostigmata order.

Emile, I just couldn't resist the play on words

I also thought that was mighty funny;
along with the fantastic smiley face you created !
I love it !

Moved from Rove Beetles.

This is in the Aleocharinae,
