Comb-clawed Beetle - Ptilodactyla

Comb-clawed Beetle - Ptilodactyla
Washington Crossing, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA
June 19, 2018
Size: 5-6 mm
Came to lights. I have had Hymenorus at the lights before, but this specimen doesn't match exactly. Among other differences the distal end of the pronotum seems to have notches.

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Ptilodactyla sp.
wrong family :-)

And I've had this one before!
