Finally got at least one of these. Hopefully i can obtain a female and culture this extremely rare species!
That's true, they have been found as far north as san bernardino county. Optimal conditions for their larvae seem to be quite scarce, ive only seen a handful of large paloverdes with rotting wood in the flake stage.I would be inclined to say rarely collected rather than rare. They can be somewhat locally abundant when the conditions are right. The species is likely to be a bit more widespread than current information indicates. Did you get this one out at Glamis? Nice looking specimen.
