I was shucking some dried beans we picked this fall, and found over a dozen of these tiny beetles in the process.

best guess, Dienerella filum (Aubé), a cosmopolitan sp.
will ask Charlene to check

Moved from Beetles.

 
yes!
confirmed as D. filum.
Using the new key from Chris Majka et al 2009, filum is easily recognized from others in the genus by the 2 segmented antennal club and the oval impression on the anterior of it's pronotum.

 
thanks much!
could you pls also check other unIDed pix on the genus page?

A Latridinine...
Hopefully someone else can bring the ID further.
