Thanks a lot Blaine!

better gues: Laricobius rubidus
family Derodontidae.

By far our best images of the critter! :)

perlexing
best guess, teneb: Lagriinae: Goniaderini. The pronotum looks like an Anaedus but the antennae look more like a Paratenetus. I'm interested to see what this turns out to be.

My suggestions are tentative at best and suggest not moving until they can be confirmed/contradicted :)

 
If it's Paratenetus
The UNH site just lists 2 species, Paratenetus gibbipennis and P. fuscus. I wonder if this might be Paratenetus fuscus?

Edit: I just saw your last comment, and Laricobius rubidus looks good.
