Description

Two of these images are slightly different shadow adjustments of the same photo.
Length estimate 17-24 mm.
Comparing BG images and GBIF distributions of the commonly recognized species pretty much narrowed this down to ferrugineus vs. latitarsus. But the antennae segments differ in shape between the two species, and rule out ferrugineus.
Size of latitarsus specimens on BG: 18, 17, 15, 18, 17 mm.

Could be M. inficitus, but you expect to see more emphatic raising of the tail.
It's hard to rule out M. minus, formerly a subspecies of invicita.
