black beetle - Stenomorpha

black beetle - Stenomorpha
Columbia Hills State Park, Klickitat County, Washington, USA
November 24, 2017
Size: 3 cm
My best guess: Carabus nemoralis or Metrius contractus Stenomorpha sp.

Images of this individual: tag all
black beetle - Stenomorpha black beetle - Stenomorpha

Moved tentatively to Stenomorpha
not sure what else like this would be that far north...

Moved from ID Request.

Not carabid
Carabids have normally-threadlike antennae and protruding, obvious jaws, and this beetle has moniliform antennae. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the darkling beetles.

Thanks
New guess: Stenomorpha?
