Thanks Don
Do you feel like "working" on any of these Erichsonius?

 
No thanks.
Tail pulling all the way, and this one looks like a female.

Erichsonius sp.
Not an exciting group to place to species - one must actually work at it.

Thanks Boris
Maybe Don can confirm one of your identifications from the picture, or the specimen if he wants it.

Small Staphylininae
Neobisnius or Erichsonius, I guess.
