My hand did not smell too great after handling this guy...

Moved from Harpalini.

two supraorbital setae rule out this tribe, imho; Amara?

Yes, Amara
as you, and now I see the double supraorbital setae.

Moved from Ground Beetles.

Tribe Harpalini, perhaps genus Harpalus
is the limit of my comfort level for these cute images.

Thanks for the help
your input is greatly valued. I saw hundreds of these (or another genus) in Kern county today...
