Another Little Round Beetle....had this one in the same location as the previous one, but don't think they are in the same family. Ventral view to follow.

Moved from Beetles.

Will do..
And thanks again v.

this looks like a deeply depressed male
[i mean, the pronotum]
suspect (and hope) that feature might be of significant diagnostic value, so may be it's worth trying to obtain a sharper closeup of the forebody (the head may also bear some suggestive armament, as is often the case in male ciids)
