I already posted one photo of a beetle like this, captured at the same location and place, but I am posting these three other images that show this creature in more detail. Captured and mounted by Steve Lingafelter.
Attracted to MV/UV lights at McKelligon Canyon, El Paso, TX 79904. Coordinates: 31.843501, -106.490261.

Moved for expert review to Ochidaeidae...
might need to see the pygidium ('butt') for further ID

Moved from Beetles.

Thank you Blaine!
This beetle was not mine. It was collected by Steve Lingafelter who took the Beetle with him back to Arizona. Hopefully, he will send me this beetle's "butt" picture.
