Moved tentatively; nice find!
Moved from Agonum.

 
.. and nice call by V Belov and nice new state record!
I hold just two specimens of Tetraleucus picticornis, both from WI. I suspect the species is relatively uncommon in its range. The diagnostic combination of Agonum-like body and unique pale coloration of the antennae ought to be apparent in any habitus photograph (in retrospect). I will add this record to the ongoing registry-forum for tracking new carabid records. Keep hauling them in!

 
Jim Liebherr agrees:
"Yes. The only other species with similarly colored antennae is Agonum albicrus. The record is beyond the west margin of specimens I saw, but I recorded state records from Minnesota and Iowa, so OK seems fine on that count. That's a nice record."

 
Thanks!
Pretty cool -- thanks to everybody for your assistance!
