Unidentified Longhorn covered in Trillium pollen - Cyrtophorus verrucosus

Unidentified Longhorn covered in Trillium pollen - Cyrtophorus verrucosus
Skunk's Misery, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada
May 13, 2018
I'd love to know more about this small beetle, found inside a Trillium flower. I assume it was feeding on the pollen.
Messy eater!
From a distance I thought it was an ant. When I moved closer, I suspected it was an ant-mimicking true bug... It also resembles a Velvet Ant, but it's definitely a beetle. :-)

Moved, Cyrtophorus verrucosus
Moved from ID Request.

 
Thanks!
Much appreciated :-)
