Fire-colored Beetle - Pedilus canaliculatus

Fire-colored Beetle - Pedilus canaliculatus
Ballston Lake, Saratoga County, New York, USA
April 24, 2010
Size: 6 mm
I caught a pair of these beetles today on a flowering sour cherry tree. They were together on a small branch, although they were not mating. I can take more pictures if it will help identify them to species. The other one is here.

P. canaliculatus...I think I see a groove down the center of the pronotum.
