Moved from Beetles.

looks more like a corticariine to me...

thanks v
was just a guess, haven't spent much time with these little brown ones, they all look the same to me

how about a female Corticaria? 11-segmented antennae, five visible abdominal sternites, and setose fovea in front of front coxae (kind of like this one).

easily a Corticaria; better get Charlene's opinion, though

Sorry for the late response, but it is Corticaria :-)
The pronotum shape is similar to C. elongata, but the only way to confirm is by dissection of males.
