Moved from Harpalini.

Bradycellus rupestris (pale teneral)
based on my microscopic examination of this specimen which is now a photo-voucher in the P.W.Messer collection. Thanks Tim.

teneral individuals don't fly, i think
the flight musculature wouldn't work properly until the skeleton/integument has fully hardened, which also means acquiring the final coloration -- so this must be full color
