Not a click beetle I am very familiar with but it certainly looks good for the species. Hope you dont mind me asking but is it definitely a British beetle? The googling I have done is bringing up plenty of continental references only.

HEMICREPIDIUS Germar, 1839
ATHOUS sensu auctt. Brit. partim non Eschscholtz,
hirtus (Herbst, 1784)
niger sensu auctt. Brit. non (Linnaeus, 1758)
and a link to the sensu auctt. bit.
They are both on the British list and if my memory is correct I do believe I have them both.
Happy new year to ye all...!!!!
I wasnt aware there 2 so similar, thanks for answering my question regarding its British status.
