Also its a Female.
Also its a Female.

E. longicollis LeConte
Fairly certain from the images, but from AZ if it is a larger species, 2 rows of yellow(ish) setae lining the plantar grooves of the tarsi and a dorsoventrally projected prosternum, you are down to E. longicollis or E. hepburni from high elevations.

A key is available for the AZ species: http://taxonbytes.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Johnston_etal-2015-Amphidorini_Arizona.pdf
