I only found these on the flowers of the rabbit brush. Some were all black and 2 had these orangish markings. Some where mating. Help with ID is greatly appreciated.

Genus Crossidius...
... See here: (1).

Nice photos!

 
Thank You
I appreciate your help. I imagine this genus may be hard to get to species since there can be so much color variation.

 
maybe so...
... but this beetle does look very similar to this specimen from Utah:


The all black specimens perhaps were a different species: Crossidius ater (1).

 
I was thinking Crossidius hirtipes
But, I am definitely no expert in this genus. I find them difficult to ID to species with specimens in hand.
