Moved
Moved from subgenus Eleodes.

Moved tentatively: the genus is under revision
further identification (to species) may not be possible from this photo; there may be dozens of spp. of this subgenus in NM, although the exact location may help narrowing down the ID options once the results of the revision have been published

Moved from ID Request.
