Moved Tent.
Type here. This species is described from NM. The type is a female however.

Moved from Aptopus.

Moved Tentatively...
If you have the specimen handy please check the tarsal claws for serrations (combed claws). If they are combed, this is Aptopus. There are a couple slender species like this (I've seen one of them from AZ).

Moved from ID Request.

 
Combed clawed,
Aptopus it must be... but, is different(pronotum)than the one Jim posted. Thanks again Blaine!
