Scaphinotus? - Scaphinotus punctatus

Scaphinotus? - Scaphinotus punctatus
Fair Oaks, Sacramento County, California, USA
December 28, 2007
Size: about 14 mm
Found by Will Chatfield-Taylor inside or under the bark of a rotting log on our collecting trip near the American River.

Not Sphaer*oderus? Actually, now that I've compared images, I think this must be a stoutly built species of Scaphinotus, the other snail-eating genus in the same tribe. The shape of the pronotum is my strongest clue.
