Thanks Don!
Another new species identified for the guide.

Nemadus triangulum
Just got the UNH Nemadus back from Stewart Peck, and your specimen fits his determinations of this species pretty well. Not sure about the gender of the species ending though - looks wrong.

Leiodidae: Cholevinae: Nemadus sp.
A small carrion beetle (close, different subfamily). I think Nemadus (color, form, transverse strigules on elytra), but would be good to keep for me to make sure.

 
Thanks Don
I'll save it for you.
