maybe S. lecontei
please consider sending your ground beetles to Peter Messer for ID -- having BG photos supported by voucher specimens is the best way to proceed, esp. as it comes to speciose taxa of smaller carabids

 
Vouchers.
Thanks. I'll keep your suggestion in mind.

 
i appreciate it a lot
the 'voucher program' will enormously increase the guide's value as we'll be confident what the guide photos actually show, rather than guessing based on preponderance of evidence; i'm sure that, a serious entomologist that you are, you will also benefit from expert IDs of the actual specimens
