thanks again, Dr Maddison
Moved from Bembidion.

Probably B. planum
Definitely subgenus Trichoplataphus. There are three species of that subgenus in Missouri: B. planum, B. ozarkense, and B. grandiceps. It's hard to be certain from this photograph, but it is not B. ozarkense, and is almost certainly B. planum

Trichoplataphus? looks quite like B. planum
Moved from Ground Beetles.
