I found a number of these tiny beetles under a small patch of dry seaweed and reeds on the west side of Sandy Point. Sericoderus? See the other beetle species found in the same roughly 3'x3' patch here.

Beetle Beetle

Moved from Beetles. Tentative ID from Doug Yanega.

Sericoderus are fuzzy
This one appears to be nude. Maybe Phalacridae?
