Do we have any more pix
of this guy? I think it's a female, and if so, I can probably tell species if I had a shot of the pronotum and head.

If I had to give a species det I'd say M. emarginata, but I can't be sure without a good head shot.

Monotoma
suspect parallela, but pix aren't sharp enough to make the call

 
Monotoma
If you tell me what feature(s) you need I can see what I have.

 
a neat plain dorsal, esp. of the pronotum and head
