Need help with this one. Definitely Harpalini, leaning towards Notiobia terminatus.

Moved from Harpalini.

Looks like it...
Looks very similar to mine here, and you may recall this case too, which remains unresolved. Do you think we're looking at the same species here?
Tough little guys to ID!

This and other two images cited are consistent
with common Notiobia terminata -- further supported by Brad's assertion that this one keys out to Harpalini. Notiobia and its species members should not be difficult to identify via scoping. For now I would say that the pronotal borders appear too widely pale to qualify for my second choice of Notiobia sayi.

Glad to have this one nailed down. The prosternum is setose, which would rule out N. sayi.
