Rhadine lindrothi Barr, 1965
in the dissecta group. This is a north-central Rhadine with rufo-testaceous coloration, pair of foveae on mentum, narrowly reflexed pronotal margins, and blunt elytral apices. Another important character (not visible in the habitus image) is that the protarsi should be smooth dorsally, i.e., without a median furrow as seen in the more southern R. dissectus. Guy, can you please confirm non-sulcate protarsi under high power. Othwerwise, excellent photography of a well-prepared specimen!

 
Protarsi
are smooth dorsally...

 
Thanks
for the clinching detail.
