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 ( showing the large punctures on the pronotum for M. semipunctatum.
