I don't think so
troglodytes has the pronotum impunctate [or nearly so] and the metatibiae look wrong

 
Are you thinking what used to be campestris
and is now aegrotus, or..? I see what you mean about the tibiae. This, of another specimen, looks more like what I remember http://bugguide.net/node/view/526767 as far as the tibiae.

 
yep,
the tibiae on the other looks better

 
OK, I got better images of the real troglodytes specimen,
including a closeup of the pronotum and (not great) of the hind tibia and tarsus. http://bugguide.net/node/view/531968

 
I think that the pronotal punctures
appearing so obvious is an artifact of lighting and oversharpening, but I'll try to get a better shot of the metatibiae.

 
Aidophus parcus
The pronotum of troglodytes lacks setae and the first segment of the metatarsus is really long. This specimen is definately Aidophus parcus.
