spectacular... thanks, folks!
Moved from Beetles.

 
Thanks to all!
It was so tiny and constantly moving that details were hard to capture.

Different opinion
Note the partly exposed last dorsal abdominal segment and the tarsi, which appear 4-segmented, the 3rd segment bilobed.

I guess this is a member of Anthribidae.

Great call. Probably a Euxenus.

Nice find!

 
Those photos
do look a lot like it, and that was about the right size - too small to make out any details with the unaided eye. Thank you!

Do we not yet have a section here for it?

Looks like something in Leiodinae
