Clivina americana
based on my microscopic examination of this photo-vouchered specimen. This species is widespread in eastern half of North America. Morphologically fits well the standard keys to species of Clivina. See discussion of the C. americana species group (new subgenus Leucocara) by Yves Bousquet in ZooKeys 25: 37-48 (2009). I was able to exclude the four other currently valid members of this group. Thanks Johnny.

i so hope someone will sort them out; must be doable
