Moved from Beetles.

Looks like a Leptostylus to us.
We would have picked maybe transversus from Mike Thomas here though that's not as clean of a choice in Yanega, fig 292.

 
Thanks folks
Following up on your suggestion, I found an excellent match with these fine images by Marvin & Jo Smith that were identified by Ted C. McRae as Leptostylus transversus.
