good thing we're dealing with the depauperated ne. fauna ))

Moved from Carpet Beetles.
Do I need to take any other angles, like maybe a ventral shot?

 
no idea
based on general considerations, an antenna closeup + male genitalia would help the most

 
I'll see about antennae close up
but the genitalia shot might not make it.

Cryptorhopalum for sure
species is another matter... just another way to say, i'm clueless
