Fungus Beetle? - Penthe pimelia

Fungus Beetle? - Penthe pimelia
Atchison, Atchison County, Kansas, USA
April 3, 2012
Size: About 1/3 inch
Found on Hexigonal-pored Polypore with lots of Handsome Fungus Beetles. Found another today of the same...but much smaller.

Moved from ID Request.

I wondered if it was a type of Darkling but couldn't find any matching images. Had to kick myself...litterally a Polypore Beetle??? lol That's the kind of fungi I find it with.
You're to quick for me! :o)
