Moved, thanks Chris
I was snooping in that area but missed this one somehow!

Please try to submit images of dried, properly-curated specimens (if not 'live' images); images of insects in liquid can often be misleading (although these pics are pretty sharp!)

Moved from ID Request.

Ischalia vancouverensis
An uncommon beetle in the family Ischaliidae (formerly of Pyrochroidae)
