How do I ask for more money

How, when, and with whom do I negotiate my salary if I get a job offer?

I had a first interview with an HR recruiter. It went very, very well. She asked for my salary expectation and I gave her a range. I have a second interview with the hiring manager (and person who I'd be reporting if I were hired) in a few days. If that goes well, there is a third and final interview with some other teams, i.e., people I'd be working with/supporting.
In prepping for this second interview, I reviewed the job posting again and realised that the posting is for a "senior" role, even though the title does not have the word "senior" in it. Now I feel I should be asking for a bit more (when I check Glass Door, the "senior" role at the same company makes about 10K more than the high end of the range I gave).
The question is, should I email the recruiter with a new range, or should I wait until after the second interview and have a clearer idea of what the job entails? Do I wait for a third interview? Do I talk to the manager, or do I deal with HR?
Thanks for any input! I feel like a bit of a doofus and have never had to change my salary expectations before.
PS. Also, is there any practical reason for leaving out the "senior" in the title, i.e., is it a tactic for paying less $ for more work? :(
