Beetle with ridged pronotum - Bothrotes canaliculatus

Beetle with ridged pronotum - Bothrotes canaliculatus
Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida, USA
October 19, 2004
Possibly Bothrotes canaliculatus (which I photographed in the same location a few days earlier - see below) but it has a much more ridged pronotum. What do you think?

Moved
Moved from Bothrotes.

Tenebrionidae.
These are darkling beetles in the family Tenebrionidae, and probably Bothrotes or a related genus.
