Thank You V,
This was another one of the beetles I had miss placed in my collection.

 
probably Chilometopon pallidum
It's either that or C. abnorme, but of those only C. pallidum is known in NM. A dorso-frontal shot of the head would make the species ID easy.

 
Head shot posted,
hope it reveals what you need to confirm ID. Thanks Jason!

 
just what i needed!
Even if its a bit blurred, the epistomal lobe is obviously rounded, not truncate. So it's Chilometopon abnorme, a female. (Males have elongated last antennomeres.) The center of the distribution is southern CA to western AZ, so this catch in NM is a bit of an outlier.

 
Thanks again Jason,
I have only observed 2 or 3 of these throughout my collecting years. I believe I have one other specimen but, I may have donated it to UNM.

 
de nada, you got it right
hope Jason Botz confirms, i sent him the link
