Thank you, Don.
I always enjoy getting a new species for bugguide. Moved from Hairy Fungus Beetles.

Litargus diadesmus
fits reasonably well. There aren't really any other likely candidates. I agree with V that it is not tetra*spilotus now.

 
Apparently L didesmus
I googled diadesmus and got nothing. Didesmus is how it's spelled on your checklist so it must just be a typo :-)

Moved

Mycetophagidae: Litargus tetraspilotus
Looks like.

 
Okay, I see a resemblance :-)
Thank you. I don't know why this one didn't strike me that way.
