Swept from tall grass. I've got this one in the freezer if anyone knows how to determine species. I saw that there's a key to Eastern species in McPherson's guide, but I'm not sure that will help a lot with one from New Mexico. Looks a lot like the ones that are ID'd as H. parvulus, but I don't know what to look for to make that call for certain.

Moved tentatively... aeneifrons is also likely
Moved from Homaemus.
