Oil Beetle with Tachinidae egg? - Meloe impressus -
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA October 14, 2011 Size: 20mm?
Not great images... Found eating grass with one more female and one male (bigger than females).
Is that white thing Tachinidae egg? If so, you can add to this article? http://bugguide.net/node/view/379399
