Platyceropsis ? - Platyceroides keeni

Platyceropsis ? - Platyceroides keeni
Pistol River View Point, Curry County, Oregon, USA
April 20, 2005
Size: 9 mm
Found dead on the ground. Fore-tarsi missing, but most of the other ones and the antennae are there.

Can't find any images to compare but it seems to be distinct from Platyceroides and meets the description for Platyceropsis in the American Beetles key to genera: body and legs robust, hind tibiae stout and triangular in cross section.

Found your paper
where Platyceropsis is synonymized with Platyceroides. I did not find it until I searched "Platyceroides keeni". Thanks for the ID ... I was led astray by old information. And its nice to get a species key for the tray of undetermined Platyceroides.
