not Dicaelus
not sure off hand yet though what it is, maybe an Anisodactylus? Will revisit if others do not get to it first.

 
I think you're right
Anisodactylus is a good bet, it's got the red head spots.

Dicaelus sp.
I believe this is a species of Dicaelus beetle. Here's the genus page: http://bugguide.net/node/view/370
EDIT: Hmm, now I'm thinking I was mistaken as the thorax shape looks different from Dicaelus species. I still think it belongs to the Carabidae family.
I'm sure someone who knows beetles better will be able to ID it. :) Sorry, it looks so familiar to me but I cannot find a species that matches exactly.

 
wow, thanks for the detailed
