Brown/black bug - Mezium americanum Brown/black bug - Mezium americanum

Moved from Mezium. Images reconsidered, I´m pretty sure now.

How to seperate Mezium spp.. . .
Pests and Diseases Images Library tells, but it´s not applied on these pictures.

Mezium americanum - little doubt
I confirm the ID insofar it´s for sure a member of Mezium - but I can´t tell how to seperate the domestic americanum from the imported Mezium affine.

Spider Beetle
Yes, this is a spider beetle. Could be Mezium americanum based on comments here ,
but I'm not real familiar with this group.

Very Nice
Reminds us of Subfamily Ptininae - Spider Beetles. Images in the guide here, but some of the beetle experts here should be able to give you a more definitive ID from these lovely images!
Welcome to BugGuide - what a great first set of images!
