Laphystia sp., nr./= tolandi.
Laphystia sp., nr./= tolandi. Looks to be this species (prob. a male); but record is much further east than previously known distribution (Nev., Calif., Ore., Idaho, Utah). ?

Is this possibly a female of the same species?

Four species
known for NM otherwise. And I don't have descriptions of those. And there are no photos of them here on bugguide.
