must be IDable
based on circumst. evidence, i would call this one M. (Clypeogethes) aeneus dauricus Motsch. [the only one w/DB records -- treated there as a separate sp.], the Siberian/Nearctic race of the most common member of the genus [duller head & pronotum than in M. (Clypeogethes) aeneus aeneus] -- see sp. page by Kirejtshuk, who has revised the rich Palearctic fauna [a hundred spp in Russia alone]
