Moved from Ground Beetles.

Throwing out "Stenolophus ochropezus" for starters.
One of the most abundant and widespread ground beetle across North America. Happy to give you a reasonable name for his one, however in my opinion, best to frass current image in a couple of weeks after giving others a chance to weigh in.

 
Thanks
I can replace this image unless any more of these are not needed for the Guide.

 
If common, some say "keep" only if KY record is new to BugGuide.
Striving for a better image documenting this collection event is always a good thing. By "better" I mean overcoming the current bent body with a straight overhead perpendicular shot that captures the details & shape of the pronotum especially.
