Probabaly Selenophorus palliatus (Fabricius)
based on the rather large seriate punctures atop the elytra. There are a couple of cryptic species that may look like this one. Jon, are you able to mail me this specimen for accurate species identification? I'm currently writing a paper on North American Selenophorus. Thanks.
