Ground Beetle - Anisodactylus dulcicollis - female Ground Beetle - Anisodactylus dulcicollis

Anisodactylus dulcicollis
is confirmed based on my microscopic examination of this specimen which is now a photo-voucher in the P.W.Messer collection. Thanks John.

This species is new to my reference collection. Please watch for another example as this specimen came with missing parts - including antennae lost sometime after this photo. Thanks.

 
Thanks Peter,I will save the next one for you I
find,this one was found in yard covered in ants and the time I let it
sit in film canister the alcohol nearly evaporated while unattended.

Moved tentatively based on Igor Sokolov's hint; nice!
Moved from Ground Beetles.
