Well, I have to concur:
Cymatodera. That terminal antennomere says it all.

any chance you could do blow-ups of the antennal terminus and the elytral punctation, especially posterior half? I just want to verify for myself that this is Cymatodera rather than Leconte*lla.


Moved from Beetles.

Could also be Lecon*tella,
a similar though less speciose genus. E.G.

Cymatodera; opinion of Jacques Rifkind:
"any one of a number of similar looking species"
