What is it?

Erotylid fungus beetle, new species for bugguide
at least that's what it looks like to me with those colors and antennal termini. This one's more elongate, but looks similar in pattern:

 
Ischyrus quadripunctatus (Olivier)
Wouldn't bet the farm, but those four spots on the pronotum scream out Ischyrus quadripunctatus (Olivier) - already in guide. This shot shows more detail though.

 
Gulp!
