Abax parallelepipedus

Definitely this species - broad pronotum gives it away.

Also Abax because the seventh

Also Abax because the seventh stripe on the wing cases, counting from the centre, is raised in a ridge at its base. No Pterostichus species has this feature. See http://www.thewcg.org.uk/carabidae/0054G.htm
