Anobiidae > Tricorynus ? - Tricorynus

Anobiidae > Tricorynus ? - Tricorynus
Middleburg, Clay County, Florida, USA
March 27, 2011
Size: 1.7mm
Lighted sheet. Haven't had one of these before. If I used (1) correctly,
I came up with an Anobiid, because of the last 3 antennomeres elongated;
depressed 1st ventrite; concealed procoxae, and lack of 10 definitive striae.
Then to get gutsy, I will guess T. similis, if no one takes it to the bank.
Corrections/comments appreciated.

Here is a key that may help you work through the species (although it is for Wisconsin): http://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/documnts/fplgtr/fpl_gtr209.pdf

I have a very similar specimen, which I believe may be Tricorynus herbarius, the Mexican book beetle. An incomplete but decent catalog of anobiids can be found here:
