Rhinoceros Beetle? - Copris fricator

Rhinoceros Beetle? - Copris fricator
Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
May 10, 2016
Size: 16mm without horn(2mm)
This beetle was attracted to the light on the back deck over night. I was able to get a few pictures and then a spring storm came by and it escaped before I could get any with it fully awake. Looks like a male with the horn but not sure of the species.
