Lebiini? - Platynus

Lebiini? - Platynus
Madera Canyon - Mt. Wrightson picnic area, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
September 13, 2016
Size: ~ 11 mm
Came to U/V lights, believe this to be in the tribe Lebiini? Also the elytra have a slight purplish sheen to it. Confirmation/correction, and further placement would be appreciated.

Pretty sure this is Platynus. Will and Liebherr's paper on the N. American species (north of Mexico) might help- (1).

Moved from Beetles.

Platynus or Agonum
