Looks like these may be rare or hard to find... wish I would have known that before releasing it. Oops. I'll go back out and see if it lingered. OK so now I see it may also be Utobium. I'll wait for an expert to comment before moving this anywhere.

has to be Xestobium affine LeConte 1874
perfectly matches the MCZ type

Moved from Xestobium.
