Moved from Beetles.

Might be Omosita nearctica

I remember collecting bugs at Oakwood Cemetery during my years at ESF.

Hey fellow Stumpy!
After doing some looking around after someone else mentioned Nitidulidae yesterday I guess that same species. I also dug up another (blurry) photo of this that looked just like that species

With that second picture,
I can see that it’s actually Carpophilus hemipterus.

I do not agree
Omosita looks good, or least something in that group; not a Carpophilus

Both images are FRASS candidates either way
