Unknown Beetle

Unknown Beetle
1.6 mi. NNW. of Antelope Fire Control Station, Willow Springs, San Benito County, California, USA
April 22, 2013
Size: 4.1mm length.
Found this guy in the same flower as . 36.66578°N, 121.03568°W; 2634 ft. elevation.

Moved from Dasytinae.

This is possibly a Listropsis as the other specimen, but the pronotum is much narrower here. The concept of Listropsis is at least partially subsumed by the current concept of Trichochrous, so "Trichochrous (sensu lato)" is a safe designation.

Moved from Beetles.
