Eucnemidae?
I dunno, somthing about this sits funny with me....maybe I am over-analyzing it?!?!

 
Eucnemidae, i'm with you
~Nematodes

 
It that black line...
down the pronotum a groove? Not sure yet what to make of it! Paging Robert Otto!

 
paged already

 
I have a name already....
for the eucnemid at hand. It is not a Nematodes. The reason is the antennae. For the most part, all the antennal segments are pretty consistant. Nematodes usually will have a short fifth or sixth antennomere compared the surrrounding ones; depending on the species. The above eucnemid belongs to Dirrhagofarsus. It is a species my team is currently working to describe.
