ID please

Moved from Iphthiminus.

Iphthiminus serratus (Mannerheim)

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

This is Iphthiminus

Moved from Beetles.

Tenebrionidae: Nyctoporis sp. maybe
It is a darkling beetle. Size would be helpful. If it is about 16 or so mm, it looks like a Nyctoporis. Very nice photo.

Thank you
Yes that is about the size it was.
