Had a real hard time trying to get a clear image of this very small beetle; especially for it not being a feather-winged beetle. Taken from berlese trap, hope someone can id to at least family, ventral view to follow. Thanks...

Thanks for the I.D.
I had put it on a point last night, it came back alive and worked itself off the point. It is so very minute that I spent 45 mins. trying to find it. Thanks again for the tentative id....
