Thanks Peter and v!
Moved from Diplocheila.

Image details appear to support Diplocheila obtusa,
a species widespread in the northeastern quadrant, although not given VA status in catalogue by Bousquet & Larochelle (1993).

 
thanks again, Peter
so it's a nice find anyway

nice one... rarely seen on BG
Peter may have a more specific idea -- this is a small group.

Moved from Beetles.
