Burrowing bug

Family Cydnidae


Small bug ~⅛"


Found on the ground which has recently been cleared of wild rose and nettle.


I'm hoping someone can help me id this bug. I found it near my new beehive. While I don't think it is a small hive beetle, I just want to be sure.

Not a beetle, it is a "true bug"
