The longitudinal vitta on the left elytron appears to be aberrant.

Looks extremely similar to Blaine's from NY.

Moved-mystery solved!
Moved from Athous campyloides.

Moved from Athous campyloides.

Moved from Athous.

This seems conspecific with my NY specimen, which I have keyed out AGAIN in both Becker (1974) and Becker (1979). Still coming up A. campyloides...but I am nervous to put a label on in in my collection-LOL.

my NY specimen....
keys out to N. campyloides but I do not entirely trust it. Waiting for a couple experts to chime in :). The distribution of campyoides (in 1974) has it fairly restricted, but as it is introduced, it might be prone to rapid spread.

My initial attempt a couple of years ago to key this one brought me to N. campyloides as well. My reservations are similar to yours.
