Comb-clawed Beetle

Pseudocistela sp.


Black beetle with long antennae. The legs have red femurs and black tibia. At first I thought this was a comb-clawed beetle but the thorax looks wrong.


Chamise in chaparral.


Sent to Bug Guide since suggested ID was out of range. They tentatively have it at Pseudocistela genus.
