Platycotis
Our collection has a male like this that is only 4 mm long; presumably the same (undescribed) species. Did you save the specimen?

Note the very small hind tarsus, characteristic of this genus.

 
I did save the specimen
it is currently dry, in a micro-centrifuge tube, I can add EtOH if preferred. Thank you for the genus ID.
