Moved from ID Request.

Not Staphylinid..probably Sericoderus..collected something similar to yours in BC last year.

I don't think I have any of these in my collection, looking a Corylophidae Sericoderus I don't see any on the data page for Washington. Thank you both for your assistance.


has to be a Sericoderus
