Teneb. Metoponium?

Teneb. Metoponium?
Kuna, Ada County, Idaho, USA

A new one for me, never seen one of these before, I assume it's Metoponium? It had a waxy blue sheen like many of the Pimeliinae do, most of it rubbed off by the time I got around to taking pictures of it though. Found under a big clod of dead grass in a scrubland area. Sorry for the rather poor images, if it's not a significant record or anything, feel free to frass, I just want to know what it is. :)
