Looks to be a Diogmites, I want to get a better photo of this guy than this one. I think I'm going to buy a tripod pretty soon. It's too hard to do macro when you have a tremor.

Diogmites
Kansas Diogs are limited fortunately. And this black striped contrast with the pale thorax is striking. I am betting the central stripe fades into red but I cannot see it which would make this D misellus. There is a species D pritchardi that occurs in OK and TX that I have no information on.

 
Thanks a lot for the ID and q
Thanks a lot for the ID and quick reply. I'll go ahead and move this!
