Moved tentatively
Moved from Cryptopleurum.

a Cercyon that is common in my backyard looks exactly like this
i strongly suspect this is the same species, it's ca 1.5 mm and not as pubescent as the Cryptopleurum (the ones i've seen, in any case)
a peek at the venter will clarify its generic identity
