Ground Beetle - Chlaenius aestivus

Ground Beetle - Chlaenius aestivus
Grantham, Pennsylvania, USA
April 23, 2005
I found a lot of these beetles recently. Is this genus Chlaenius? Also one group was found with several false blister beetles among them. Is this coincidence?

Chlaenius aestivus Say

Chlaenius-yes
Yes, I believe the pubescence and the punctures on the elytra are distinctive for that genus.

I'll move to guide--ID Request is very busy.
