Thank you Margarethe!
Much appreciated.

I would like to use this one
and the size I can down load from here is plenty big enough, thank you!

Dasytine from El Paso.
This is the male of Cradytes serricollis (LeConte). Males always have some amount of yellow or brown color on the elytra. Females are entirely dark. This species emerges in the Fall, usually September/October and is common on Fall blooming Compositae such as Guierrezia. The distribution includes Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

 
yes
I collected this guy in southern AZ (outside Fred Skillman's place)--that was about 10 years ago but now I remember the sexual dimorphism with regards to color.

 
This is great info Adriean!
Much appreciated! If a BG Editor agrees with your ID, this would be the only BG entry outside New Mexico.

probably; that subfamily for sure

 
Thank you Blaine!
