Thank you Blaine!
I thought it was Lecontella simply based on coloration and the constricted posterior of the pronotum, but I failed to go to the info section for Lecontella to find: "...very similar to Cymatodera, but with male terminal antennomere more elongated." Now I am sure it is Cymatodera, but I have not found a species on BugGuide that looks exactly like this entry. Blaine, I appreciate your kind help identifying this critter.
