Acylomus pugetanus Casey
Very nice: this is Acylomus pugetanus Casey. I've long suspected that it occurred in New Brunswick since it is found in Nova Scotia, Maine, and Qu├ębec, and now this specimen confirms its occurrence. See the following paper for more information:
Majka, C.G., Gimmel, M.L., and Langor, D. 2008. The Phalacridae of Canada: new records, distribution, and bionomics with a particular focus on the Atlantic Canadian fauna. In: Majka C.G., Klimaszewski J. (Eds) Biodiversity, Biosystematics, and Ecology of Canadian Coleoptera. ZooKeys 2: 209-220.
