very cool little thing; Nephus?
Moved from Lady Beetles.

 
agree with Nephus
Can't tell species from these photos alone, looking forward to Tim's opinion on the specimen!

 
Yes,

MJ, if you're ever able to ship any of these, I'd dearly love to see this one close up!

 
I'll send
with the mordellids.
