Cafius luteipennis? - Cafius luteipennis

Cafius luteipennis? - Cafius luteipennis
Santa Barbara County, California, USA
April 21, 2014
Size: ~10mm
Found under wrack along high tide line on sandy beach habitat

Moved from Cafius.

Alice, your horriblest pictures are still well above average
and i find this one lovely; will ask around

Moved from Beetles.

Horrible picture...
but, this could be new one for the guide if I'm right on Cafius? From the species description in on p. 192 it says "Adults of this species are easily recognized among Pacific coast Cafius by their bright buff colored elytra".

C. luteipennis
