Notibius puncticollis
Expanded (fossorial) protibia and bicolored dorsum separate this species out. Cool find I haven't gotten any for my own collection yet! The other image you looked at/comment on under Conibiosoma is misidentified, check out Kojun Kanda's images of that species.

Thank you very much!
I have about 50 of these specimens in alcohol. I'd be happy to send you some for your collection, if you'd like. Thanks again.
