Thank you, bayuka. The two species are very similar anatomically. The occurrence area of both seems to overlap in the Southeast, where the record was made. How do I differentiate the two? Thank you.

Welocme on Project Noah, Diogo! Nice to see here, also this Carabidae. I see you change your ID from Alternans to Retusum. Please, tell me why?
