Male, Collops?
This is Collops granellus Fall, a common Arizona Collops. The diagnostic feature, small round granules on the elytra can clearly be seen in the third image. Active from Spring through Fall it is most likely to be found in late summer.

 
Excellent!
A new species for the guide? No wonder I couldn't find matching images. Thank you so much Adriean!

 
Thank you!
with the help of Adrienne's descrition and Salvador's excellent series of photos, I should be able to identify this species now. I think I just collected some males and females

 
I kept the specimen
and will take focus-stacked images of his elytra soon with the intention of showing this diagnostic feature more clearly.
Your kind comment is much appreciated.
