Pleasing Fungus Beetle

I was quite pleased (so to speak) when I found out what this critter is called. It’s a pleasing fungus beetle, specifically¬†Gibbifer californicus, from the (who knew?) pleasing fungus beetle family. It landed on a fellow hiker last weekend and stayed with her for quite a while.
