Paraphlepsius collitus
Montrose, Laurens County, Georgia, USA

I originally classed this as Excultanus excultus, but as can be seen, there are a number of inconsistencies starting with the pronotal area and extending down the dorsal area and sides. Virtually all images in the Guide are very consistent and don't agree with this specimen. Therefore I am at a loss as to what this is, as usual...

Moved from ID Request.
