Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA

Size: 41mm
The mesopleuron (above mid-coxa) has a flat surface, lacking any outward extensions. (tubercles) Compare with the previous image, for reference.
In this image, look near the lower edge, near the green-colored point that reaches the bottom of the mesopleuron. There is a natural angle at this location, which may sometimes look like a tubercle, depending on the viewing angle and the resulting reflections.
