Agna capillata? - Agna capillata

Agna capillata? - Agna capillata
Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
March 19, 2016
Size: 2.3 mm
While trying to escape the cold, we went camping in southern AZ and this flew to the UV light. It seems to key easily to Agna using Am. Beetles. The vague but large antennal grooves and the tectiform and carinate prosternum with side ridges seems to be unambiguous. I haven't any detailed description, so an expert opinion would be very helpful. There is apparently only this single species in the genus which might have a distribution in the southwest?

thanks, Rick

Moved from Sphaeridiinae.

Nice! I cannot confirm as I dont have specimens of this species.
but it looks about right from what I remember. I used to get it in the deserts of AZ, at light and in decaying cactus. Hope Brady or someone else can confirm; would be a new genus for us!
