Sphaeroderus stenostomus lecontei? - Sphaeroderus stenostomus - male

Sphaeroderus stenostomus lecontei? - Sphaeroderus stenostomus - Male
Oakridge National Lab., Anderson County, Tennessee, USA
July 21, 2015
Size: 13mm
I believe this specimen to be Sphaeroderus stenostomus lecontei.

I was unsure how to exactly go about counting the more lateral stria, and was hoping with the aid of these photos someone can confirm this applies as "more than 11".

I will attach several photos of the elytra.

This specimen was caught by NEON using a pitfall trap containing a 1:1 ratio of water and propylene glycol.

Yep!
I also find the striae counting a little bit confusing. When you see one with less striae, like canadensis or indianae, it's pretty obvious though.

 
Thanks!
Awesome, thanks for ruling out those specimen! I feel mucho confident in this ID now, thanks.
