Moved from Carrion Beetles.

We would have thought Necrophila

The larva I brought back emerged today. Necrophila americana.

pretty sure this is Silphidae
Moved from Carabini. There was another one feeding on a dead bumblebee, which seems to have pupated so hopefully the rearing record will decide for sure which species (unless it can be told from the photo).
