Thanks!!
I think I see now where I went wrong when trying to key this out to genus before.

I also realized that I had recorded the length wrong, and I re-measured it at right around 2 mm. The characters are a little mixed, but after looking at reference samples, I think it's a male L. affinis. I'd appreciate any confirmation or correction!
