Found under a rock. Is this a Carabid, or some other family?

Moved from Charaphloeus.

Don, it sounds like you could have some fun describing new species:-)

Charaphloeus sp.
Not very common in our area, with the most common one being an undescribed species.

Laemophloeid
The two front-to-back "ridges" along the pronotal edge, as well as the large head, place this beetle in family Laemophloeidae.

 
Lined Flat Bark Beetle
This beetle must have been lost, under a rock instead of some bark. Thanks for another beetle id.
