Silvanid - Silvanus muticus

Silvanid - Silvanus muticus
Chantilly, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
May 17, 2009
Size: ~ 2.5 mm
Found under the bark of a rotting tree. My best guess is Silvanus.

Silvanus muticus, i believe

S. muticus.

Thanks, Michael!

having second thoughts about this one...
suspect Silvanoprus angusticollis; will ask Dr Thomas to check

Thanks, v!
This is the last beetle I newly met the day before yesterday. I am going to visit a nearby county park tommorow for finding insects on live plants other than rotting trees.
