I collected this beetle sweeping foilage with a net during Bugguide Gathering 2013
. I key it to Cryptorhopalum obesulum
in Beal 1985(1)
based on its ovate form, single oblique stria extending beneath trochanter, uniform pronotal setae color, front tibia wider in middle than apex, elongated club, and habitus 1:1.5 width:length ratio. Expert confirmation is appreciated.
