Eumolpinae? - Typophorus

Eumolpinae? - Typophorus
Nogales, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
August 10, 2017
Size: 3 mm
Caught by sweeping vegetation
Coordinates: 31.338148, -110.961331

After Dr. Jason Botz helped me identify this beetle, he contacted Ed Riley for his opinion and this is what Ed answered: "Yup, that's new for the USA. Lots of bi-colored Typophorus in Mexico, but none reported from USA. Definitely look for more of these. They should be associated with Convolvulaceae. Difficult to impossible taxonomy in this genus. Lots of names south of the border. A really good find."

Moved from Leaf Beetles.

Typophorus
I think it must be this genus (given the ocular sulci expanded above and behind eyes). Could be a neotropical subspecies of T. nigritus.
