Ptinus raptor Unknown Beetle. - Ptinus raptor

Moved from Spider Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

Ptinus sp.; kinda looks like male P. raptor Sturm
would be nice to see a dorsal [critical for most beetle IDs]; not the best angles here, but one important thing the pics do show is those very prominent, dense, rather short & well-defined pronotal tufts

ID confirmed by Boris B├╝che: P. raptor
