Third of three Stenelmis species collected on same night. This one has a single vitta on each elytron that covers two intervals.

Using Brown 1976, I think I've narrowed it down to S. decorata, S. vittipennis, or S. markeli. I noticed that a description of vittipennis says it has an iridescent abdomen, tibiae, and tarsi, which this specimen has. Unfortunately, it's a female and I can't be sure from the keys.
