Alphitobius diaperinus/laevigatus? - Haplandrus ater

Alphitobius diaperinus/laevigatus? - Haplandrus ater
4 mi. W. Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas, USA
June 21, 2013
Size: ~ 8.5 mm
Came to MV/UV lights. Unsure which this is, an Alphitobius diaperinus or laevigatus. I noticed the apex of the hind tibia on this one is substantially narrower than submitted diaperinus, if that makes a difference. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.

Haplandrus ater --det. W.E. Steiner
his comment: "Needs to be moved to another genus, a project I'm currently working on. Hap. fulvipes, the type species, is in a different subfamily! Have larvae & pupae to be described."

Moved from Darkling Beetles.

intrigued, not sure what it is
doesn't strike me as Alphitobius
