Size: ~1/4"

nice pic, but the angle very challenging
in the future, when posting Heteroptera or beetle photos for identification, please do your best to obtain a straight dorsal shot and avoid oblique angles like this one [they are of little, if any, diagnostic value]
also keep in mind that size data only help if measured in mm, otherwise the field is better left blank; estimates are useless for identification purposes, and more often mislead than help
