Acmaeodera? - Acmaeodera scalaris

Acmaeodera? - Acmaeodera scalaris
El Paso, El Paso County, Texas, USA
Size: 10 mm
This beetle was kindly given to me by Mr. Joe Cancellare who collected it in El Paso over two years ago, but he didn't remember the date. It is missing legs.

Moved from Acmaeodera.

Great! Thank you Richard, Bruce, and Blaine!
for your kind help.
