Located along Guardsman Road  on Wasatch County side, Utah, USA on August 3, 2016
Identified by Bugguide.  (The 2 yellow spots are just beneath the pronotum and the pink maculations at the very  bottom tip of the elytra are barely visible)

Elytra are the modified, hardened front wings of beetles.  Pronotum is a prominent plate-like structure that covers all of part of the thorax of some insects such as beetles.
