Clivini? - Clivina dentipes

Clivini? - Clivina dentipes
Medford, (~25 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
June 26, 2007
Size: ~8.0mm
believe this is a member of Clivini, but I'm not sure which genus. It's a solid 8mm, which appears to be a little big for Clivina. Suggestions welcome :)

Moved from Clivinini.

Not too big
I would think this is Clivina, and probably C. dentipes. Look here and see if you think it matches.

Thanks Brad,
yes, after going through D&A keys, I see that some Clivina do reach 8mm or slightly more. And from the key, it does seem to point to C. dentipes. And the first couplet in the Clivina key seems to be misleading. It states "middle tibiae with strong spine or peg-like process on outer margin near middle". Both yours and mine have the strong peg/spine, but it's much closer to the apex than the middle. Thanks for the ID :)

That is a problem I've noticed with their key. It should say apex instead of middle. (Makes me think I should keep a list of all the errors I find in that book......)
