We don't know how to choose on this one. The one that looks closest to us in Yanega is fig. 77, Trachysida mutabilis, but we could be miles off.

Insects of Cedar Creek has a specimen. I don't know what to look at--certainly it's similar. I copied each image and made a composite in Photoshop--that is helpful. The pronotum is hard to say--a different angle. Pubescence on pronotum looks similar. Antennae look similar, esp. that club-like first segemnt. Legs look similar--pubescence and shape, and the little spur at the joint at the top of the tarsus. Punctures on elytra look similar.

My vote would be that the genus is correct, based on the rather distinctive antennae, although looking through Yanega, there are some others that are close. So maybe it is just a question of distinguishing from T. aspera brevifrons.
