Pleasing Fungus Beetle (Dacne picta) (?)   - Dacne picta

Pleasing Fungus Beetle (Dacne picta) (?) - Dacne picta
Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County, Georgia, USA
May 24, 2020
Size: ~ 3.5 mm
(Dacne picta) (?) Found near (Dacne picta) specimens previously collected/ confirmed in 2018. [Reference previous BG Images 1575741 and 1578363 (07/26/18).]

As with the previous observation the beetles were found on a dead standing pine tree covered with (Polyporus sp.) fungus. The current polypore fungus does not appear to be same as the type depicted in the (07/26/18) reporting.

Thanks Blaine :)
I collected a few and can send them to you if you or somebody else you can think of might want them.  If so I would need packaging/ mailing instructions, etc.
