Southwestern Ironclad Beetle

Dear J Anthony,
This strikingly marked beetle is a Southwestern Ironclad Beetle,
Zopherus nodulosus.  The common name Ironclad arises from the strength of the exoskeleton that makes if very difficult to crush members of the family.  You can get more information on this species by browsing BugGuide.
