Paraclivina postica (LeConte)
based on my microscopic examination of this specimen which is deposited in the P.W. Messer collection as a photo-voucher. Thanks Iustin for this excellent contribution of a new species for BugGuide.

Differs from Texan P. bipustulata by smaller body size, elytra with apical red maculae smaller and wider apart, and pronotum distinctly puncatate. The dorsal image nicely shows these diagnostic punctae.
