Moved from Paederini.Seems most likely to be Lathrobiina, but I can't see the anterior face of the hind tibia clearly to check on the apical ctenidium (comb of spines) of that group. (It has a very well-developed ctenidium on the posterior face.) I also wondered about Orus (Stilicina), but the shape of the head and pronotum don't look right.

Moved from Paederinae.

Moved from Rove Beetles.
