Moved
Moved from Uloma.

Uloma
The antennae rule-out U. imberbis. Any chance of getting shots of the underside of the front femora? Need to check for pit vs. pit and groove.

 
No underside shots
I figured this was a common species, so I didn't keep the beetle.

 
Uloma
Tom, are you familiar with this site on Eastern US tenebs. It looks like at least three species of Uloma get into the northeast. The keys on the site are only for FL, but they can be helpful for much of the eastern fauna. Belov may be able to get the species based on gestalt!

 
U. impressa?
The size fits best, and the shape of the pronotum looks good.
