? Pterostichus vernalis

Observation - ? Pterostichus vernalis - UK and Ireland. Description: Scurrying over the stones. Only 5-6mm. Seems to have a fine violet edge like a Violet Ground Beetle, but the beetle is much smaller. The closest I could get was P. vernalis, but could be way off the mark and might not even be a Pterostichus.
