Scymnus of some sort - Scymnus

Scymnus of some sort - Scymnus
Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, New Mexico, USA
May 4, 2011
Size: a smidge more than 2 mm
I found this little Scymnus (I think) on Juniperus monosperma. I first I thought it was Scymnus coniferarum, even though it was on juniper. Now, I'm mot so sure. It seems a little too round. I'm sorry that I am at the limits of my photographic equipment. I have a top and a bottom image here.

definitely Scymnus, not sure which
I don't know if we can tell from these photos but the pattern is at least somewhat distinctive. I don't have a good Scymnus reference so I can't do a whole lot myself, I'll check the refs I do have though.

 
Scymnus (Neopullus) hoffmanni Weise
It could be Scymnus (Neopullus) hoffmanni with reference to Weise.
