I found this group of bugs on a feces pile. I'm thinking they're Alydus eurinus but would like confirmation. Thanks!

Moved from Alydus.

Moved from Alydinae.

Moved from Broad-headed Bugs.

Hadn't noticed the brown one before. Maybe A. pilosulus.

Moved from ID Request. The brown one on the left may even be a different genus. I have frequently found more than one genus of alydid in situations like this.

For what it's worth...
...A. eurinus would be my call.
