Female Collops.
Spectacular portrait of a female Collops. I can tell because males have grossly enlarged basal segments on the antennae.

 
Thanks Eric
You really do know your bugs, no matter what family they're in. Thanks again for your expertise.

Collops bipunctatus
The species name sounds like it's describing the beetle. Thanks for the ids again, Mike.
