Moved from Beetles.

Athous rufiventris
This keys out well to rufventris in Becker (1979), with antennomere III longer than IV; distinctly umbillicate punctures on pronotum and proepisternum; lack of distinct carina on pronotal hind angles; and color. The genitilia are exposed enough to see both the lateral and median lobes are c/w rufiventris also. And as Tim pointed out, a common species in the PNW.

Thank you both..
Appreciate the ID....

Gestalt says Athous
probably A. rufiventris, which is common in the northwest but wait for Blaine...he's the clicker guru..
