from John Pinto: "looks to be Pseudozonitis longicornis (Horn).
"...The other possibility is roseomaculatus but I'm discounting that based on head color and to some extent on geography. One really needs to see the underside of the head (for ventral extension of eyes) to identify Pseudozonitis to species. Unfortunately this is the last thing one would see in a photograph."

Moved from Pseudozonitis.

Moved from Beetles.

beautiful images as usual...
interesting color pattern to coincide with the lampyrids! Agree with genus and will move, appropriately!

 
Unreal!
That is a very convincing mimic indeed! Interesting that both beetles have potent chemical defenses, albeit different ones.
