Western Region, Ghana.

Thank you for any help with the identification.

It would be important to have a good sight on the tarsi in order to count the parts. But I would not be astonished with seeing this beetle belonging to the Anobiidae family from which it reminds the genus Ptilinus.

With this pronotum narrower than elytra, this guy reminds me a Drilidae (which has - unfortunately -the same tarsal formula as the Anobiidae (5-5-5).
