Beetle - Steriphanus Beetle - Steriphanus

Moved tentatively
Moved from Edrotini.

I'm leaning toward Steriphanus
The gestalt just looks more like Steriphanus to me (kind of convex), plus the pressed-in center of the epistoma is found in at least some species of Steriphanus. This is not a definite ID, though.

Moved from Edrotini.

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Metaponium, most likely

Moved from Beetles.
