Eucanthus.

 
Thanks!!!
Any way to get a species??

 
my guess
based on specimens I have collected, looks like Eucanthus lazarus, but I need to check distribution records to be more sure....

 
looks right
in Kansas, you also get E. impressus [also in the guide now], see range, from what I've seen, the range data in zipcodezoo is pretty complete, not perfect, but darn good. E. lazarus is EVERYWHERE - the map is spotty for this one, actually most of the US, is missing Texas, Florida and many NE states.
see comments on this thumbnail to differentiate E.lazarus and impressus

 
I looked at the specimen
I looked at the specimen and it seems to fit the description of lazarus rather than impressus, thanks everyone!! I really like this little guy, I can see why you like them so much!
