Definitely R. lophanthae
Moved from ID Request.

It keys out perfectly, and the presence of adults helps too! (I was going to tell you to look for adults if you hadn't seen them, in fact.)

Great detail in the photos of this tiny larva!

possibly Rhyzobius lophanthae
I'd like to check my key at home first, but this looks like the coccinellid Rhyzobius lophanthae.

Makes sense
I've collected numerous adult Rhyzobius lopanthae in this location in the past couple years.
