Beetle - Priognathus monilicornis

Beetle - Priognathus monilicornis
Timothy Lake area, Clackamas County, Oregon, USA
July 17, 2010
Size: 10 mm
Coniferous forest, found this unusual beetle under a log. Tarsi 5/5/4 and antannae's shape reminds me Tenebrionidae, but I'm not sure even on family level. Any ideas with ID? Thank you!

great find, Andrei
Moved from ID Request.

Looks like Priognathus monilicornis but I'll wait for others to confirm.

Thank you very much Tim! I have never seen any other members of this family instead "Pytho" before. This genus is quite new for me. Great and very fast ID!
