Acmaeodera tuta? - Acmaeodera
Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, west of Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, USA

Reviewing photos, found this beetle on an Opuntia basilaris flower. Recognized the genus, asking for confirmation or correction of the species. I believe it resembles Acmaeodera tuta most closely, but it looks to have a coating of pollen, which may be hiding some characteristic markings. Thank you for your guidance.
