A specific Identification is needed for Pollinator Network purposes. Any help getting this one to Species would be greatly appreciated. Gender would also be appreciated. If higher resolution or different angles are needed please contact us at Jacob.Higgins@nau.edu

Moved tentatively; hope Jacob adds date & angles as requested
Moved from Trichochrous.

Cradytes?
I suspect Cradytes here, in which case the female of C. longicollis would be the closest match. The character to look for is a coarse denticulation anteriorly along the pronotal lateral carina (often not visible in straight dorsal view). The date of collection is not indicated, but if this ID is correct it should be September or October. Date of collection should always be included with dasytines since species are strongly seasonal.

Incidentally, Cradytes is probably nested within Trichochrous (sensu lato).

Trichochrous sp. --det. A.J. Mayor
his comment: "Most of the species of Listropsis are restricted to California on the northern coast."

Moved from Dasytinae.

 
I don't believe this could be
I don't believe this could be Trichochrous. It has two types of bristle. our Genus ID was from American Beetles which had the determining factor between the two be whether there were two types of bristles or one.

Moved from ID Request.

this may also be E. punctata
as I remember, they are dimorphic with regards to color. I collected them in Cochise Co. at the base of the Dragoons.

 
...or maybe not :)
This doesnt look conspecific with the other image. Hope we have a melyrid specialist here.
