better photo of pronotum showing seta, punctures, and their spacing. This is my first attempt at stitching photos using HeliconFocus for better depth of field. Five were used in this case, but a few more should be no problem and would get the legs in better focus.
Using key from Downie and Arnett I now believe this is Onthophagus pennsylvanicus. Corrections welcome
