You are correct, Sir!
At first glance, I think it might be M. stygicus. I'll see if I can't nail it down down at the lab. Beautiful beetle. Nice find.

 
Thanks.
My tentative ID was M. harrisii, but I wasn't quite sure what "moderately densely punctate" was. Looking at M. stygicus, I think that looks about right.

Edit: Looking at your M. harrisii post, I can see now that is clearly not what I have.
