Rove Beetle Perhaps? - Philonthus cognatus

Rove Beetle Perhaps? - Philonthus cognatus
Logy Bay, Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada
June 26, 2006
Size: 13 mm Body
I found this bug about 4:00 PM while I was building a retaining wall in our backyard. It was crawling in some gravel and was very quick on it's feet. It looks a lot like this one ID'd from Victoria,
BC
. Any help confirming this or with an ID on Genus/Species? Quedius maybe?
