Moved from Lithoseopsis. Oops! I saw the older comment on image four before the newer one on this image. Sorry about the double move. Beautiful critter!

Dr. Mockford says ...
Yes, this is L. hellmani. I also have it from southern Arizona in the mountains just west of Sierra Vista. This is the first California record. It has a very wide distribution in Mexico, down to Yucatan and west to the coast in Sinaloa. That was a nice photo which allowed a very definite species identification.

Thanks to both you and Dr. Mockford for the identification!
