Moved
Moved from Beetles.

Can't place it now, but pretty sure not Tribolium

 
Mission complete!
Dr. Andrew Johnston (Arizona State University) and Gary Ouellette (APHIS-PPQ) both agreed that this is Cynaeus angustus

 
I wasn't confident about my tentative ID
I considered other possibilities in the Triboliini such as Hypogena marginata, but was not convinced either.
Thanks!
