not widely reported on this site but is reported in Louisiana in other sources .. the image is similar. Any ideas?
I apologize for image quality, was cropped from a moth photo, the moth being the principal object of the photo.


yeah i get this thing at my porch lights every now and then
Moved from Paederinae.

Moved from Rove Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

I would think Achenomorphus corticinus...
but the resolution isn't good enough and the angle of the prothorax and head are misleading

I can see that
and there is no Louisiana record, too bad the image is not clearer … maybe someone else at the gathering photographed this.

Hypomedon debilicornis?
Do you have this species in the USA? Always recommended to collect the Staphylinidae instead of making pictures.
