re-image
Thanks everyone! This image is a bit blurry in parts. I am working up a new (old) camera set-up (Powershot A650), and had the focal steps too big in my manual focus script. On the Ataenius imbricatus post you can actually see "ribbons" of clear and blurry regions running down the aft elytron in the full-size view. I'll try to re-image and re-post, with a better view of the front tibia, and general view in focus of the dorsum.
Thanks again,

Looks like Blackburneus; cannot quite see the protibial punctures but I think I can see a hint of them. Not sure (offhand) what species gets that far north, outside of A. (B.) rubeolus.
