Unknown Beetle - Meloe
Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
October 23, 2015
Size: 1 1/2 inch
This picture shows the truncated antennae and missing eye as well as some interesting features down its side. Possibly a Darkling Beetle? Looks somewhat like Broad-necked Darkling Beetle in one of my guides but has immature wings.
