Sorry about the extra move. I am going to put this back at the tribal level for now. This MAY be an Athous, possible A. essigi. For the record, essigi belongs to a complex that, in the past, was included in what is now Hemicrepidius :)

I am hoping when the MCZ site is back up it will help confirm/eliminate some ideas...

Moved from Hemicrepidius.

This is Hemicrepidius. Not keying well in Horn (1880) and the MCZ site is currently down so I cannot see other types. It is most-similar to H. soccifer, but that species is currently only known from high-elevation mountains in southern AZ and NM so it's doubtful it's that species.
Damn, this genus needs a revision...

Moved from Prosterninae.

Moved from Click Beetles.

possible Hemicrepidius or Athous
can't quite make out membranous tarsal pads here (if so, they are small).
