Dear Bugman,
We saw this guy crawling across the sand in Anza-Borrego State Park on March 21, 2010. Any ideas?

Desert Spider Beetle

Dear Madena and Charlie,
Just last week, we posted another photo of the Desert Spider Beetle or Inflated Beetle, Cysteodemus armatus, and that specimen was also from Anza-Borrego.  Your photo has much crisper detail than the photo we posted earlier.  You can read more about this fascinating beetle on BugGuide.
