These are common on the beach dunes of northern California and Oregon in April-June. They perch on the bare sand next to patches of vegetation. They can be found on any of the dunes (i.e., both the 1st dune and subsequent ones), but I think they're more common on the interior dunes. Black haired, with prominent dorsocentral stripes and tergites mostly polished.
