or Megalodacne

 
yes certainly not a Nitidulid

 
Pleasing fungus beetles look
Pleasing fungus beetles looks like a great fit. Would pictures of the accompanying mushroom help confirm ID? I also noticed mites on the picture of this individual. Once we have a confirmed ID, would a blown up picture of them be able to be identified?

 
No. we think it will be ID'd as is
just have to wait for a coleopterist to look at it.

Not an expert ID
But looks more like Picnic beetle to me, because of the colour of the spots.
