Another Geotrupid? - Odonteus

Another Geotrupid? - Odonteus
4 mi. W. Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas, USA
May 17, 2016
Size: ~ 7 mm
Came to U/V lights at night. Believe this another Geotrupid in the Genus Eucanthus. The one previously posted (1) is much larger thinking this is an opposite gender of it, or a different species. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.

Moved, this one is Odonteus...
notice the difference in the canthus over the eyes.

Moved from Scarab, Stag and Bess Beetles.

Thanks Blaine that gives me three genus of Geotrupids now...
