Moved from Ground Beetles.

Visible details consistent with Bradycellus nigrinus,
however, initially posted "~6.5 mm" ABL here does not fit the reported maximum of 5.9 mm for this species. My largest specimen is 5.5 mm long. Gary, are you able to re-measure to make sure? Your very nice sharp photos put me in the right direction I believe.

 
Thank you for the complaint.
I re-measured the specimen with my calipers. And I must have looked at it 5.5 and read it as a 6.5, the closest I can come to now on the re-measure is it appears to be 5.59. And thank you for your help...
Gary

 
Thus, safe to call Bradycellus nigrinus
in my opinion.
