Mating pair can anyone ID? I'm pretty sure it is Pselliopus but not too sure on species...maybe cinctus? Sorry for the blurry pic.

Hello Tyler
Welcome to BugGuide. I'd say your ID is probably correct. You can compare your image to those in the Guide Here

Tyler. I didn't know you have been a member for some time. I only saw this image when I clicked on 'Images submitted by this contributor' on your profile page. Keep up the good work!

This genus is in need of revision. I've corresponded with the gentleman who is going to do that, but it is going to be awhile before a new key is generated. Leave at genus for now.
