glossy black carabid - Amphasia sericea

glossy black carabid - Amphasia sericea
Medford, (~15 miles east of Philadelphia, PA) Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
July 11, 2006
Size: ~10.5mm
better shot of hind angles of pronotum - clearly rounded, more than photos I've seen of Harp*alus ruf*ipes. Any alternative ID suggestions would be appreciated.

Also visible down the left side is the yellow seta on both the elytra intervals (heavy) and over the entire pronotum (less dense). And the fine, dense punctation over all the elytra intervals is visible down the right side.
