Posted to extend BugGuide map range for the genus & sp. into CA.
Posted to also add some pictures of detailed characters to make up for lack of live specimen action pictures.

Characters listed below from "The North American Cerylonidae" (1) to validate the identification as I keyed it out (I'm not an expert on this family, species or genus).

Head
-- Clypeus shallowly emarginate.
-- Frontoclypeal suture absent.
-- Antennae 10-segmented with 1-segmented club.
Thorax
-- Prosternum without antennal cavities.
-- Intercoxal process of prosternum strongly widened posteriorly.
Abdomen
-- Apex of last ventrite always strongly crenulate.
