Iphthiminus sp I think

Could certainly be...
Looks like Iphthiminus serratus, which I see you've photographed before.

I. salebrosus has been recorded in BC as well but I know nothing about that species. Something about yours looks a little different to my pic. I'll be interested to see what others have to say.

I. salebrosus
This has seemingly been added as a synonym of I. serrator - see this article.

ahh good to know
leans some weight to I. serratus.

The Spencer collection does not have an image for anything else close.
