Have had this one in my unknow collection for quite some time (as you can tell by its collection of fuzz). I found a similar picture of Retocomus, family Anthicidae, but didn't know if they occured this far west. Can anyone help me figure this one out?

Need a good lateral view of the eyes. The furthest north they are known is Utah and Colorado, and could reach to SD.
