Found walking on the ground after rains
Determined by Salvador Vitanza
Confirmed by Dr. Andrew Johnston (via these images) who said: “It sure is a female E. subnitens! The best character to separate it from E. madrensis is the prosternal process, but the shape of the pronotum is quite diagnostic, especially in these nice photos.”
