The BLACK AND WHITE BUG - Rosalia funebris

The BLACK AND WHITE BUG - Rosalia funebris
Lucerne, Lake County, California, USA
June 24, 2008
Size: 1.5 inches
I have never seen this bug before. I found it crawling along my driveway and I captured it. Don't know if it is harmful to my house or garden. I am interested to know what it is. Does anyone recognize it? It is still alive. Update: Okay, it kind of looks like a Cephaloon or Beetle, but slightly different.

i found of these in thurston county washington

B & W bug
I saw a bug very similar to this bug in Kansas City, KS. I tried to find out what this bug was and the closest I could find was in the wood borer family. The one I saw had large circle markings that would make this bug look like it had big eyes on the head area. I am going to see if it comes back and take pictues.
