Another Carpophilus from yucca flower - Carpophilus melanopterus
Richardson, Collin County, Texas, USA

Size: 5mm
Shook from the same yucca flower that produced http://bugguide.net/node/view/627138. The two are similar in size and shape, but differently colored. I will keep the live specimen for a few days.
