Moved from False Darkling Beetles.

 
Darren's followup:
"I think my specimens of S. antennatus match the 'mystery' beetle. Unfortunately, the photographer didn't include the size.... Scotochroides are little fellers (all of mine fall into the 3-4ish mm range). I thought it might be one of the Symphoras, but then discarded that idea. I really don't know what else it could be (esp. if it's similarly small)."

Scotochroa?? cool thing, will show around
Moved from Beetles.
