Peracalles - Peracalles ventrosus

Peracalles - Peracalles ventrosus
Rotonda West, Charlotte County, Florida, USA
June 7, 2011
Size: 4.5 mm
Collected between 4.VI.2011 and 11.VI.2011 at porch light.

Seems to be Peracalles sp.; American Beetles lists two species in the genus, P. pectoralis and P. ventrosus. I believe this is P. ventrosus based on location and comparison to type photos on MCZ.

Checklist of Florida beetles only lists P. ventrosus, but the specimen in the guide from Florida was ID'd as P. pectoralis. Confirmation of species ID (if possible) appreciated.
