beetle - Canifa pusilla

beetle - Canifa pusilla
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
July 23, 2011
Size: ~3mm - body

Moved tentatively
Moved from Scraptiinae.

Canifa pusilla (Haldeman)?
Well, it looks like Canifa (although a better look at the maxillary palpi & from another angle would be useful). Within this genus, it "best fits" C. pusilla (Haldeman). I'm not very happy with the account of these species - "ripe" for a nice little study!

thanks again, Dan
yes, the group is more than ripe for a revision...

not sure yet about genus... badly need to see more detail
Moved from Beetles.

only photo
I wish I had more photos of this one but no such luck. This was the only photo.
