ID confirmed

That's great
Thanks for the expert confirmation Boris!

Still have them
Don, I still have 3 of these I'll save for you.

Dienerella ruficollis
Maybe.... Dienerella is the senior syn. of Microgram*me. Should have asked Tom to keep this one - we have only one specimen from Durham.

 
D.ruficollis was my thought, too.
If it were from Europe, I wouldn´t have hesitated. I did not use the genus name in my comment because it is not listed under it in Nearctica. Good to know the change is now generally accepted.

Not Stephoste*thus
Either Carto*dere or Micro*gramme (different set of genera).

Moved
Identified right to species, just like the one you submitted. Thanks Pierre-Marc.

Latridiidae
It is a Stephostetus liratus of the familly Latridiidae.
