Colydium lineola
Yes. Not common. If you find another or two, I wouldn't mind having them.

 
I found it.
Took me a half-hour :-) I'll shoot it again this evening and stick it in a vial for you.

 
You can have this one
assuming it's still in one piece.

 
lineola vs nigripenne
Just noting that this pictured specimen is a blend of the characteristics of lineola and nigripenne as described in Karl Stephan's paper. The punctures on the pronotum are very round like nigripenne. Also lineola tends to be longer and thinner, l/w=5 vs 4.5 for nigripenne. These look in between. Nigripenne almost always has the pronotum more reddish though.

 
Thanks, Richard.
I've collected and photographed several more specimens that are buried in my enormous backlog to process and post. I think they are the same species but will check them against the features you mention here when I work my way down to them.
