Parallelostethus attenuatus

Parallelostethus attenuatus
Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA

Size: 17 mm
From panel trap.

Parallelostethus attenuatus. A large click beetle, most often black with a red thorax. Antennae are serrate in both sexes. The sides of the "mesosternal fossa" are parallel, thus the genus name.

Size is listed as 16 to 22 mm. I think other BG images have their size overestimated.
