Brown-edged black ground beetle - Anatrichis minuta

Brown-edged black ground beetle - Anatrichis minuta
Patuxent Research Refuge North Tract, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA

I welcome other opinions, but struck me as Anatrichis..
Caught my eye as this nice species, and wanted to add to the otherwise scant page for it.. Additional pictures may help confirm or deny, if you have any.
Moved from Beetles.

 
No other views, sorry
It sounds like you are certain about the genus but less certain about the species?

 
minutua is the only Anatrichis in MD
So genus and species go hand-in-hand in this case. The gestalt is dead-on, in my opinion, but it's hard to feel 100% without a clear shot.
