Elaterid 01 - Megapenthes quadrimaculatus - Female

Unknown elaterid. Looks like Megapenthes quadrimaculatus (here), but I don't know if there is anything similar out there.

ID confirmed

looks OK
Does your specimen have the hind angle carina of the images of BG? Kinda hard to tell with a straight-on dorsal shot. However, would prefer to key at some time rather than just compare images on BG. On the west coast, the elaterid fauna is wacky :)

 
Yes
the hind angles are carinate.
