Description:

About 7mm long (excl. antennae). Found in dry pit fall trap in garden. I'm pretty sure it's a Badister sp. A previous posting on iSpot said "Scutellum black rules out the unipustulatus. First antennal segment entirely rufous, so: B. bullatus". This seems to fit my photo so so I'll go with this species.
