Thanks V..
You beat me to it...


Closer look..
I must apologize for the less than sharp and clear images, best I could get with minute beetle. Upon looking closer with scope, conforms with many details of Sphindus... I'll move the images as they are to that genus and see if others will confirm what I think is americanus. Thank you for your help..
