Is this the Hadromychus undescribed species mentioned in Am. Beets (17 years ago?) that should be in ID and MT? I got it last week in a pitfall trap baited with fermenting fruit and molasses. It has the 4-4-4 linear tarsi and the pronotum has the 4 deep basal pits characteristic of Hadromychus. It has complete pronotal submarginal sulci, and to my eye it has a different shape to the pronotum than H. chandleri. I could not find any more info on this western species. Anyone know?
