Tenebrionidae, dorsal - Centronopus calcaratus

Tenebrionidae, dorsal - Centronopus calcaratus
Jani Wood, Jefferson County, Iowa, USA
July 25, 2018
Size: 15+ mm
I want to call this Centronopus calcaratus in part because I can't figure out what it actually is. It's within the range of length and found under bark (I know, a lot of them are). The front tibia, as far as I can see on several photos, does not have the spine shown here.

Thanks for an ID.

sexually dimorphic tibial armature is rather common across insects

Moved from Darkling Beetles.
