Brown Beetle	 - Neatus unnamed

Brown Beetle - Neatus unnamed
White Fox, Torch River, Saskatchewan, Canada
July 23, 2016
Size: ~11.5 mm
Found hanging in spider web beside my back door, six feet above the deck.
Is this slow moving beetle a Tenebrio molitor? Thank you.

Edited Size
Deleting images, beetle standing on rule not 12.5 mm

Moved tentatively, Neatus unnamed seems like a safe bet...
Moved from Darkling Beetles.

 
.
Thanks again

 
No problem, glad I could help! :)
Hope the beetle does well for you, Tenebrionids really like dog/cat food btw.

 
Short term well
It is munching on a piece of cat food. Later today I'll let it go.

Moved, doesn't look like T.molitor to me...
Perhaps a Neatus species?

Moved from Beetles.

 
Neatus unnamed
Thank you. Yes, Creighton SK seems to be a better match. I have the beetle in a container with a selection of food, I'll add fungus from my compost bin tomorrow, then take time and have a close look at its feet.
