Moved from Ocellate Rove Beetles. Looks like Hapalaraea (new genus for BG!) and there's only one eastern species. I can't tell if it's a male or a female. If it's a male, the hind tibiae should be flattened and have a curved piece "carved" out. (The name hamata means hooked, referring to this.) If it's male and doesn't have that, I'll have to reconsider the ID!

What is extruded from the abdomen appears female (but I could be wrong), and the tibiae are not modified. I'll add another picture.
