Lycidae - Erotides sculptilis Lycidae, pronotum - Erotides sculptilis

now i'm pretty sure; thanx for adding the colseup; helps a lot
however, D&A list no state for this species west of IN; i'll ask around about any updates

Moved from Net-winged Beetles.

would kill for a pronotal closeup; compare -- everything i can see matches reasonably well
