This is either Acritus (scutellum visible, may be small) or Aeletes (scutellum hidden). I cant tell from your image if the scutellum is visible or not (maybe I could if I was at my computer at work but I don't have as good of resolution at home).
Check to see if the scutellum is visible.

Moved from Clown Beetles.

 
must be Acritus... will ask Dr Tishechkin to check

 
Checked under scope..
And there appears to be no scutellum showing.
