Thanks Matt!!!
Moved from Stilbus.

Probably Acylomus
I am hesitant to put even a genus name on this guy, but judging by the structure of the hind tarsi (which I can only barely discern) and the apex of the hind tibia, it appears to be a species of Acylomus. As you may have figured out, spot identification of phalacrids from photographs is superlatively difficult!
