I believe this specimen is Chlaenius sericeus.

In the interest of filling in some geographic gaps, I have added this specimen, which has not yet been recorded on the guide from Washington.

good pics of well-preserved specimens are always welcome matter from what location! thanks again, Jesse.

Moved from Vivid Metallic Ground Beetles.
