Agriotes sp. I had originally ID'd as A. insanus, but I'm fairly sure that's not correct. Leaning towards A. limosus (LeConte) or A. quebecensis Brown.

Unfortunately I don't have a copy of the revision by Becker.

Moved from Agriotes.

Your preliminary diagnosis of insanus seems to be correct. The pronotal punctures are not umbilicate, the prosternal sutures are not deeply excavated, and the genitilia you have pictures matches well with the illustration in Becker (1956).

 
Thanks Blaine
Looks like you've been busy tonight.

I have the key...
if you send specimens for ID, I can do Agriotes, too.

 
Good
I'll be sending you a pair, I have plenty.
