Possibly Blaniulus guttulatus

Possibly Blaniulus guttulatus
Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
June 1, 2013
Similar to other photos on BG from the Pacific Northwest. Also very similar to a photo from Sydney, Vancouver Island, which was posted on E-Fauna and reviewed there by Rowland Shelley. His comment there was that he couldn't be positive from a photo and that it could also be Archiboreoiuilus pallidus.

Am a little confused because the family information page on BG for Blaniulidae indicates that A. pallidus is an eastern species, but it's on the BC list on E-Fauna and B. guttulatus isn't! List is based on information from Rowland Shelley from 2002 so I guess it may also be out of date.
