A wierdie
The elytral coating o' goo looks a bit weird (tubercles should be shiny on top if clean); but the size and remote basal pronotal tubercles makes this look like Omorgus inflatus, which has been a rare find in the past few decades even though Vaurie saw many when she reviewed the US species.

 
neat; thanks again, Bill
not sure what to do with this nice series...
David--
