Euderces pini
This is Euderces pini. Great photo, Jason!
I have found these to be very fast, so that makes getting a good photo even harder.

Thanks for the quick ID! It was rather challenging to get a decent shot since these beetles don't like to stay still for very long! Also, I photographed another beetle that is very similar to this one but the wing patterns are different...perhaps the male and female of this species have their own characteristic markings?

Here is a shot of a male and female:

The male and female of this species look almost the same, so I think you have photos of another species. Post your photo and someone can probably get you an ID. I am moving this photo to the proper giude page.
