I haven't had the ability to key many of these, but this one initially strikes me as Amara. Corrections welcome :)

Moved from Anisodactylus laetus. See comment by Peter here.

has "A. subaeneus LeConte", now listed as "A. coenus Say" (I assume the "o" is a mistake), which appears to be a good match for ours. To me, the pronotum still looks wider before the base, but it's close. Would be nice to see a laetus someday to compare.

D&A has both laetus and caenus from NJ, so that works for me :)

I noticed the spelling on MCZ as well, must be a typo. I too would like to see an Anisodactylus laetus.

A. laetus Dejean -- nice add'n!
keys out perfectly on D&A* and fits desc'n
taking into account Peter's discussion on the picture hereto linked, i'm satisfied that this is indeed A. laetus.
good to have you on board, Gentlemen.

Moved from Anisodactylus.
