Could be N. lustrellus Casey, 1895 (lots of teeth apparent on the horn). This is a coastal species recorded from San Mateo Co. (Chandler, 1982). There is a high level of endemicity with Notoxus in CA, so the actual specimen may have to be keyed for an accurate ID. Other members of the sparsus-Group are also coastal in CA.
