Comment from Ferenc Vilisics:
Ligidium: I asked the expert Dr Stefano Taiti about these. He said: 1. certainly these are Ligidium sp, and 2. from the locality possibly Ligidium gracile which is endemic in the NorthWest coast of US, plus Canada and Alaska. But it's impossible to say for sure, for detailed id you need to check male genitals.
