my secret guess . . .
. . . when I saw these larvae + decription of their habitat was exactly that genus. Nice! Now I´m wondering whether I´should keep that degree of prudence or not while posting suggestions . . .

 
Fortune favors the bold :-)
It's hard to take credit for secret guesses. Maybe we should have an online gambling feature on bugguide, lol.

cool!
an underside shot of the pronotal process would help with species ID. Cool larval association!

 
I've added some underside views.
I see that I forgot it was *pronotal* underside views you wanted. Well, I'll add some of those as well.

 
I'll get one and post it.
None of the undersides I *did* get were any good. Should I save you some specimens (adult & larva)? I notice the humeral markings have a somewhat different shape and location than individuals I've posted previously: 1, 2.

 
save some please
If you could save some larvae and adults, that would be great. There are two common species in your area, binotata which is elongate and fraterna which is more squat, but there are also a handful of less frequently caught species as well. I'll have to look at a key to get an ID as I've only encountered the two common species.

 
I've pickled 5 adults, 4 larvae, and 2 pupae for you.
I'll also be posting some more views after I PhotoShop them.
