A. quadrivittata?

I've also collect this species in ...
southeast AZ, and southern New Mexico.

Moved from Acmaeodera.

Acmaeodera quadrivittatoides
Its in that complex, but they are difficult to separate without comparison of the genitalia. The locality would certainly indicate that it is Acmaeodera quadrivittatoides Nelson & Westcott, 1995. The range for Ac. quadrivittata is southern Utah and southern California (northern Baja too).
