Thanks, Vassili!
Had thought of something coccinellid when I first looked at it, but then went astray obviously. Not much time right now between taking care of my grandkids. Otherwise mostly thinking bees. Tomorrow morning I'll be going on my first all-day field trip to check what flowers are out yet.

Endomychidae was my first thought; I hadn't realized the family had been split.
