Size: <5mm
at lights in wet area...

Moved from Amnestus.

should be <5 mm, rather, i guess?
no direct evidence, but i strongly suspect pusillus --almost certainly so if over 2 mm
of the two i'm seeing around here, pusillus is much less common... hope i learn to tell those apart from dorsal photos soon

my guess.

Cynnidae: Amnestus
Thanks. I was thinking Cydnidae due to the spiny legs, but my refs said they are all black. Forgot to check Slater & Baranowski (1)...
