Moved from Omalium. Adam's right, this is too granular to be riv*ulare. Also, although Mike didn't post a size, it's smaller than that species. This one occurs from TX to FL and north to DE, according to specimens I have on hand. January at light is an interesting record and prompted me to look at the dates for this species - all the specimens I have (mostly borrowed) were collected Oct-April, so it's yet another cool-weather omaliine.

This is actually a species of Omalium. It's looking a little granular so maybe not rivulare? We'll have to ask Margaret.
