I have photographed so many rove beetles, they're starting to look alike. Thanks

Moved from Paederini.

antennae look funny, must be something nice
Moved from Rove Beetles.

Yes, a new genus for BugGuide!
The antennae are the tip-off here - "verticillate" as in the sort of tachyporine-like Habrocerus (Habrocerinae) and Trichophya (Trichophyinae), as well as Ptiliidae. I don't think there are any other paederine genera that have this.

thanks for the addition, colleagues

funny angle?
maybe just Achenomorphus corticinus?
