Andy Cline's input:
"Hemicoelus would be my first guess. This genus, like some others, is probably more widely distributed across North America than published accounts would suggest. I suspect there are numerous museum holdings across the U.S. and Canada that have undetermined material that would fill in the gaps for their distribution. We really need an anobiid specialist in North America!!!"
