Do you want the ventral view photo?
We understand this is an undescribed species. We've been going through our beetle photos over the past few days and found a photo of the underside of this individual that I will upload if you tell me how to do it. Thanks! Kim

 
send me the pic via email
and I should be able to add it to this image. Thanks, Mike

Moved from Glyptasida aegra.

Not a Glyptasida
This is an undescribed Stenomorpha species that I hope to get to in the next year or so. It does look similar to Philolithus (Glyptasida) aegra dorsally, but is very different otherwise.

 
Thanks!
This makes the beetle even more interesting. Looking forward to your description.

Glyptasida aegra -
The genus has been reviewed and redescribed by Lockwood & Pollock (2009, see reference on INFO page). Only three valid species now, two of which occur in the USA (aegra in NM and TX, and the more widely distributed sordida), the third one, rugosissima, in Mexico.
Also has been recorded from Brewster County, including Big Bend N.P.
