Alas, my photos are so bad I don't expect anyone will be able to ID this beetle found in a California Poppy. I've read that prior to the introduction of honey bees, Eschscholzia were predominantly pollinated by beetles. This pollen covered insect looked like he was ready to do just that.

I can report that here are at least three species of Hordeums growing in Moore Creek Preserve thanks to Steve Gerow's assistance. Two are introduced species, and one a native. They are, from top to bottom: H. murinum, H. marinum and Hordeum brachyantherum.

Convinced it is a Heterosilpha, but can't distinguish whether it is H. ramosa or H. aenescens with just this photo as a record.
