Moved
Moved from Beetles. Thanks, Tim - if I got hold of the 1976 Gordon Scymnini revision, could I get it to species?? :)

 
possibly,
since it looks like you still have it. But even in-hand and not moving is sometimes impossible unless it's a male. Still, the coloration on the pronotum looks a bit different than the one I thumbed. If I remember correctly, a lot of the non-male determining criteria are on the venter. Abby may be of more help too.

Scymnus
sure looks like one of these to me
