cardisce vs. catskillensis
check the punctures on the head and anterior part of pronotum:

1) contiguous on head and medially on anterior half of pronotum: catskillensis

2) separated on head and pronotum: cardisce

 
Seems like C. cardisce
Based on your mini key above I'd say it seems more like C. cardisce. It first glance the punctures seemed pretty dense on the head but I think it just looks that way because the surface in general is kind of dull. The punctures on the pronotum seem to be evenly distributed from one end to the other. I added another photo that is a fairly good representation of what I see under my scope. Let me know if you think differently.
