Giant Eleodes - Coelocnemis

Giant Eleodes - Coelocnemis
5 mi. se. of Mariposa, Mariposa County, California, USA
March 29, 2013
Size: 1"

Moved tentatively based on the comment below...

I think this is Coelocnemis
I cant see the tibial pubescence, but the shape and texture look a lot more like C. californica.

Thank you for the correction.
I found the specimen, it is indeed Coelocnemis.

only 2 sp it can be
- Hypomeron smooth; punctures obsolete or very fine, sparse, separated by two or three times diameter; subocular rugosity not extending to midventral line of head ---> C. magna LeConte

- Hypomeron distinctly punctate or punctato-rugose, punctures separated by one to two times diameter; subocular rugosity extending as continuous band across postoral region ---> C. californica Mannerheim

Moved from Darkling Beetles.
