Beetle - Iphthiminus serratus

Beetle - Iphthiminus serratus
Wheeler County, Oregon, USA
June 28, 2006
Found under a log, on a ranch in Central Oregon. I assume it's a ground beetle, but after an hour of browsing beetles, I don't feel any closer to an ID. Can anyone help with any info? Thanks.

Moved from Iphthiminus.

Iphthiminus serratus (Mannerheim)

Nice Addition.
Thank you for shooting this image, we could stand more western tenebs for the site:-)

Tenebrionidae: Iphthiminus sp.
It is an Iphthiminus sp.

Thanks Patrick and Donald
I'm impressed how quickly you found it. It looks a lot like #24860. I'll move this also to the genus page. Thanks again for the help.

It is a Darkling Beetle, family Tenebrionidae, a diverse group, especially in the West. Others might have more specifics.
