This beautiful brown beetle was attracted to the backdoor light. Can someone tell me if this is the vivid metallic ground beetle (Chlaenius tomentosus)? This is the pic from BugGuide I compared my pic to:http://bugguide.net/node/view/276161

The lot is wooded mixed deciduous/coniferous with a nearby river.

Thanks.
