Another possibility is Eucanthus impressus Howden; has the clypeal horn shorter than wide. Similar to E. lazarus, but pronotum with punctate band, and sometimes impressed midline extended over transverse swelling. E. lazarus as a rule is more 'major'.

I'll check it out when I get a chance. Thanks for the tip.

EDIT: Checked against Howden 1964 and it matches with E. lazarus. The punctate band does not extend over median swelling of pronotum as in E. impressus.

impressus is actually the more common species in South Carolina (south in general?)
