Moved from Plegaderus nitidus.

not nitidus
P. nitidus is one of the easier species to determine because of its very fine pronotal punctures (median lobes anyway) and aciculate elytra; this is another species in another species group with round, coarser punctures, possibly P. molestus or another in that group.
