Could very well be enigmatic "Clivina acuducta"
rarely known in WI (see Bousquet 2012). Won't tell discriminating features here (see(1)) except to say: "Tom, can you confidently massage the ABL to be closer to 6 mm?". Larger body length would help nail "C. acuducta". In the end, I would like to have this specimen to examine/confirm and keep as an important reference specimen. I have 2 exx from MA, but have never seen one from WI! Astute suspicion by V. belov.
