Great...
...thanks V! (and now I don't feel so bad for not finding a match).

from Marshal Hedin: "Looks like Trachyrhinus favosus to me!!"
"Cokendolpher describes males as 'body ranging from solid black...' with bases of femora 'yellow-brown'. The species is also known from western Nebraska. Cool."

Moved from ID Request.

sweet. i'll ask around.
long time no see, Ted. great to have you back.

Harvest man (opiliones)
These are related to spiders. The guide here has some good photos, but I didn't see any good matches, but I just looked. Try clicking through and see if you can get to family or even species.

 
Yes...
...Opiliones, of course. I was hoping someone would recognize at least the genus. I didn't see any good matches, but I was thinking maybe the family Sclerosomatidae, perhaps a species of Leiobunum.
