female. Can't tell much more from this shot ...

Hi J.H.,

Thanks for the help, I have several additional images of this individual. What features would help put a species name on it? I can look to see which images best show those characters (if I have them). Thanks!

If you

I've added another shot, perhaps the ends of the elytra are easier to see. Sadly this was a living (moving) specimen, and so the photos are a bit blurry and I unfortunately don't have a ventral view. Thanks for your help and I understand if species ID is impossible.

can't do any better ...
