Another possibility
From what I've been able to compare, there's a similarity to Yumachrysa, particularly with the raised vertex and broad pronotum. Several species in the genus are noted for having striped scapes as well, much like Ceraeochrysa (and particularly like C. lineaticornis, these are more lateral than dorsal). Bu… t, that's whereI get stuck. iI that's the case, these would seemingly have to be Y. apache as the other two species are noted as having pale venation… but that species should be darker insofar as I'm aware.

My thought is that these woul
My thought is that these would be worth forwarding to Dr. Catherine Tauber. These are quite distinctive but don't seem to align with any of the 5 species known from the US (or the 2 species split into Kymachrysa, due to the straight longitudinal veins). The area around the southern margin of the Edwards Plateau and south does occasionally get species that are generally more known from Mexico, but there are also a few species in other genera that have striped pedicels.
