'tiny' is not a usable characteristic; ca 3.5 mm, i'd guess
...which is not tiny by beetle standards

Moved from Water Scavenger Beetles.

I understand
thanks for taking a look and puzzling out the ID ... I understand that beetles can be minute, but on the moth sheets and as an untrained beetle photographer size is all relative. The more I work with photographing beetles, the better I will become at estimating their size. I appreciate insight that you, as an expert, can share.
