Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Eleodes
This is Eleodes obscurus. suturalis has the margins of the pronotum slightly angled up and often a prominant medial red streak on the elytra.

Eleodes suturalis?
Eleodes suturalis I think. Can't see the prontoum as well as I would like (smaller in hispilabris, wider in suturalis).
