Stenomorphus sp.
Assessing just the pronotal shapes here (otherwise diagnostic details hidden), I favor Stenomorphus convexior or S. californicus. The shape does not appear stretched/narrow enough to be S. sinaloae. All three are known in AZ. A perfectly perpendicular dorsal image and measuring accurate body length (mandible tips to elytral tips) in millimeters might also help.
