Corticeus - Corticeus thoracicus

Corticeus - Corticeus thoracicus
Tippecanoe County, Indiana, USA
July 15, 2008
Size: 3 mm
I had originally thought this was C. cavus, and it does match the guide images, but...

There is another setose species, C. thoracicus, which I think this may be. The pronotum of C. cavus should be deeply concave (as here). Mine does not have that.

Still not sure...
