Conotrachelus seniculus LeConte
Charles O'Brien det.
Moved from Conotrachelus.

opinion of Robert Anderson:
"Pretty sure it's Conotrachelus elegans, but this complex is hard and sometimes you need to dissect males"


I suspect that is the genus, but do wait for confirmation.

Conotrachelus for sure
i'll try to have it expert-checked
