Found under the bark of a rotting tree. My best guess is Uloma.

sorry about the extra move, Won Gun; i'm still sleeping
Moved from Uloma punctulata.

 
Thanks, v!
Good morning!

Tough... I expected this could be possibly punctulata, but it turned out it's not.

 
i would rather stick with my call...
[1] i don't see enough punctation on the intervals, and [2] punctulata is said to be 'uniform pale reddish brown'(1), while impressa, 'pale reddish brown to darker' [ibid.]

 
Thanks again, v!
^^
