Moved tentatively to P. pectoralis
Looks good according to Stibick (1990); the other species recorded from OK is P. beckeri, which this is not. Still, tough group w/o specimen in-hand.

Keep in mind, some of Stephan's records may have pre-dated Stibick's redefining of pectoralis

Moved from Paradonus.

Moved, Paradonus sp.
Moved from Click Beetles.

 
pectoralis?
