Lawrence County, Indiana, USA May 21, 2005 Size: 6.5 mm
Amara angustata. A species with three subapical setae on stria 7, pronotum not constricted at its base, and a trifid (three-pronged) spur on the front tibia. Separated from the similar A. pall*ipes but having the basal pronotal setae well removed from the margin and having at least part of antenomere 4 pale.
Based on Peter's comments below, this should be A. angustatoides rather than A. angustata.
