mystery beetle - Argoporis

mystery beetle - Argoporis
Huachuca Mts., Cochise County, Arizona, USA
November 14, 2006
Size: ~5-7mm
Found under rock near dry wash in west side canyon. Don't even know family, let alone genus/species. Anyone recognize it?

Moved from Argoporis rufipes.

Argoporis rufipes
I've found them on each of my recent visits to New Mexico.

Jim. At some point, I hope to begin recognizing beetles at least to family, but I'm not there yet!

Could be A. costipennis

Darkling beetle
I am pretty sure this is in the family Tenebrionidae, not Carabidae. Not sure on genus level.

Looks to me like a Carabid, dunno the genus though
