Appears to be stigmosus based on the hypomeral punctures.

Moved from Megapenthes.

Thank you Blaine..
Appreciate the help and expertise...

Could also be [i]M. caprella[
Could also be M. caprella but the 2 species are very similar..Hope Blaine gets to this.

This is a female and is either M. stigmosus or M. caprella. Need to see the punctures on the underside to separate them.

Added ventral..
Hope this will cover what you need. If not just let me know and I'll see what I can do. Till then I'll leave the specimen out till I hear from you, and thank you for your help...
