Moneilema armatum
By considering elytral and pronotal puncturing, lateral teeth and distribution, this specimen seems to me a female of Moneilema armatum LeConte, 1853.
You can check the type of this species (and of some other ones that don't seem to me all synonyms) at: http://plant.cdfa.ca.gov/byciddb/details.asp?id=7703
