Clivina pallida Say 1823, i believe
based on checking all the available MCZ types.
for reasons beyond my comprehension, this wide-ranged eastern sp. (west to TX) wasn't included in D&A key but listed in the end w/o description

 
Thanks, v!
It's a new one in BG, isn't it?

 
yup
but i haven't looked at the unIDed ones -- who knows, may be other pix among them

 
Opps! I thought you had checked all photos.
^^

yes
funny how we found beetles of the same genus on the same day.

 
Thanks, Tim!
I also saw your posting before I posted mine, and I also thought so.
