Deltachilum gibbosum
I don't think so. This guy didn't have a hard shell like a beetle. Kind of furry looking, soft. there is a distinct mark on it's back also.

 
This is Deltachilum gibbosum.
It's just covered in dirt.

 
I agree with the identification (though not with everyone's
spelling). The measurement is off by 100 percent. They are from 3/4 to 1" long.
