Moved - Thanks Don
I was trying a differnt optics set-up here, which appears to work great sometimes but not all the time. I'll try to re-image with my usual set-up and perhaps we can see the mesofemur better.

Moved from Ant-loving Beetles.

Decarthron sp.
It is a male, you can see the dorsal margin of the mesofemora is slightly modified, possibly/probably D. abnorme, but really can't see it well enough to be sure.
