Lebia vittata? - Lebia pectita

Lebia vittata? - Lebia pectita
Edgewater/SERC, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
October 3, 2016
Size: ~0.5 cm
I believe this is Lebia vittata, can you confirm? Thanks!

Moved from Lebia vittata.

I think pectita is a better match.
At the base of the elytra, the central dark stripe doesn't extend upwards and "fork" as it does in vittata.
Compare with pectita here:

that elytral stripe thing bothered be too but I couldn't find a better match at the time!

Moved, Lebia vittata
