To accompany the photo I posted yesterday, I think this might be a slightly better photo (no obnoxious red background this time, though ideally I wish the background could be green to highten the contrast between bug and substrate). As in the other post, I believe this either must be E. californicus (what I'm leaning towards) or E. briggsi (which is in the area but I'd expect the abdomen to be less marked. Thanks for any help.
