Moved from Moneilema semipunctatum.

Given that the antennal scapes are produced and the pronotum has small punctures, I think this is M. appressum. Most of the records I'm seeing have that species in this area, while M. semipunctatum is farther north in AZ. There are good photos here (https://apps2.cdfa.ca.gov/publicApps/plant/bycidDB/wdetails.asp?id=7740&w=n) showing the large punctures on the pronotum for M. semipunctatum.
