ID error
Sphenophorus venatus glyceriae Must have been a bad day for me since I got two species wrong the same day. Note the small shallow anteapical pronotal pit ahd the three separate fasciae, with the separate median Y-shaped black vitta.

ID
Sphenophorus phoeniciensis (Chittenden) A large example of the species but fits well otherwise.

 
Great!
The ID is much appreciated. Thanks!
