I would agree with Lesina sp. because of the flattened spines on the thorax.
Thanks, Mark Ridgway for the correction.

Hi TJ... here is some information which might help.

"Lesina has dorsal spines on the fore and middle femora which are absent on Ellatodon" (de Jong, 1942)
Therefore I would think this one is Lesina as bayucca suggested.

Welcome to PN btw.
