Hydrophilidae: Cercyon?

Hydrophilidae: Cercyon?
Kent County, Delaware, USA
June 13, 2014
Size: 3mm
Found about a dozen in decaying mushrooms. Sorry for the quality, was the best I could do with our microscope camera. Just want to verify that these are hydrophilids, would be awesome if someone could verify the genus though.

Images of this individual: tag all
Hydrophilidae: Cercyon? Hydrophilidae: Cercyon?

Moved & cropped for expert attention; still no dorsal... :/
Moved from ID Request.

correct tribe, it seems... dorsal view critical
always start with a straight dorsal when you want a beetle ID'd, and make sure to include capture date

Just added the date, sorry about that. I'll be sure to start with a dorsal view for all future ID requests as well.
