Laphria asackeni - female

Laphria asackeni - Female
Big Basin Redwoods SP N. Escape Rd, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
June 16, 2013
Size: 15-20mm
I think I have this one right, it is the first bug I submitted just about 3 years ago. If that's the case, this may be a female too.
This is on a small Madrone leaf, sparse grass in this mixed forest area.

another asackeni 3yo
3 years ago, a month after I took the photo of my firist one of these, another was found in San Mateo about 20 miles form me. I cannot find that one in the guide now, but I did find one other asackeni I hadn't seen before, but when doing a search for Laphria or Laphriinae ... neither of these in asackeni showed up.

Does anyone know how I could find that other image from Aug 2010?
