what a pleasure to move such additions -- thanks guys!
Moved from Acupalpus.

Acupalpus rectangulus
based on image recognition of an apparent "Acupalpus" that appears uniformly colored, relatively small (ABL < 3.2 mm), with at least 4 punctures along 3rd elytral interval and with pronotal lateral borders sinuate toward near-rectangular hind angles. Known in northeast to southeast quadrants. Thanks Tim for the accurate body length which certainly helped here.
