Would appreciate an I.D.

thanks again, Dan.
Moved from Pedilus.

Pedilus canaliculatus (LeConte)
The lighting and camera angle conspired to make this a difficut call, but I'm pretty sure we have Pedilus canaliculatus (LeConte). The microsculpturing on the head and pronotum normally give those areas more of a "mat" finish on images of this particular species, but when I took one of my specimens and boosted the light & altered the angle, I could get it to look pretty close to this image. The prominent tempora and color of the elytra pretty much dictate the call.
