The identification of each image shows when "mousing" over each photograph.
Note, some beetles were photographed outside of Arizona, but all shown here should occur in SEAZ.
Over 20 photographers have graciously allowed me to use one or more of their thumbnail photos.
Specimens primarily deposited in the Texas A&M University Insect Collection (TAMUIC).
The following individuals, listed alphabetically, have
