Cool ironclad

Hey, look at the cool ironclad beetle I found a few days ago at my mother's house in Kendall County. I just happened to spot it on an exterior house wall. I recognized the beetle type because its shape closely resembles that of a Texas ironclad beetle (Sopherus nodulosus haldemani), one of my favorite beetles. I believe this one is a Sesaspis emarginata. According to, this species ranges in Texas, southeastern New Mexico and northern Mexico but is "....uncommon throughout Central Texas."
