False alarm — I confused the epithet with hypoxanthus. So maybe this AZ collection does represent holoxanthus after all, as originally suggested. Changing the vote back.

You did that…

…just to make me take the picture down, didn’t you? LOL.

What makes this look like something other than holoxanthus? And is the photo close enough to continue using it as a reference, with some kind of cautionary note?

Now I doubt my ID is correct after a fresh look

These look closer to something like Alessioporus rubriflavus, though I understand this collection comes from an isolated area in AZ. I am also beginning to think that B. luridellus could be related to rubriflavus, i.e. they are in the same genus, based on the pictorial evidence in MO.
