Corticarina minuta - male

Corticarina minuta - Male
~60 km north of Golden, Chatter Creek, Kinbasket Reservoir, British Columbia, Canada
June 17, 2016
Size: ~1.5 mm
I have collected this species quite frequently in pitfall traps in eastern BC (Kinbasket Reservoir, Bush Arm).
Characteristic dark brown-black coloration (appendages lighter brown), small size, sharply acute hind angles of basal corners of pronotum, and confidently identified by shape of male aedeagus.
