I am pretty sure that this is a cedar beetle, Sandalus niger. While I was photographing several other individuals in my yard, she landed on me and I brushed her off, then decided to photograph her on the ground, despite her missing wing cover. I did not realize that the mass of white where her elytra was missing wasn't regular muscle tissue until I looked at the photo while editing. Any idea what insect might be parasitizing her?
