Beetle - Coniontis

Beetle - Coniontis
Alameda County, California, USA
December 5, 2009
Size: ~1/8 in., 3 mm
Found on underside of fallen loquat leaf.

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Moved from Beetles.

teneb [?Crypticini]

teneb, yes...
maybe Pimeliinae. No Crypticini in CA.

Contionis sp....
possibly. Too hard to tell from this image, but most-likely in the genus (or closely-allied)

What to do with it?
A search turned up no Contionis page. The ID is tentative anyway. Where do images with this status belong?

How about...

That's better, thanks, but still . . .
The page exists, and specimens have even been found in this county. However, the ID on my specimen is uncertain.
