Cryptamorpha desjardinsii (Guérin-Méneville) - Cryptamorpha desjardinsii

Cryptamorpha desjardinsii (Guérin-Méneville) - Cryptamorpha desjardinsii
Miami, Dade County, Florida, USA
Size: 4.5mm

Looks like another genus

In the Neotropics, Halstead (Halstead, D.G.H. 1993. Keys for the identification of beetles associated with stored products-II. Laemophloeidae, Passandridae and Silvanidae. Journal of Stored Products Research 29(2): 99-197.) recorded Cryptamorpha only from Brazil and a couple Lesser Antilles islands. It is so widespread in the world that that sounds dubious, but it does seem to like islands.
