Wew, thanks v
I hope Kojun sees it, and I did keep the specimen.

 
I stand corrected!
That sure looks like it. I never knew darkling beetles could look so...non-descript! Haha! They usually have a very distinctive look, despite all the shapes, sizes, and colors I've seen!

If you're thinking of Tenebrionidae
Nope, it's not a darkling beetle. It looks like it might be from the Cerebrionidae family, but I'm at work, so I can't check the correct spelling, but it's related to click beetles and the males sometimes have feathered antennae.

 
Did you mean Cerophytidae? No, I don't think so

 
Just remembered
I meant Cebrionidae, but I'm doubting that now.

 
Actually, I might be wrong.
Actually, I might be wrong. I'll get back with yah after work!
