Moved from Harpalini.

Moved from Ground Beetles.

Not Trechus
because the elytral striation is well visible in the apical region, and laterally. Also, Trechus spp. are less parallel-sided as a rule.

This is some small Stenolophine (Acupalpus? Bradycellus?).

Trechus apicalis ?
It look like a teneral version of Trechus apicalis to me. But I could be wrong ; I don't know the Trechus species of New Jersey, and I don't see enough well the apex of the elytra for be sure that the genus is good as well.
