Never seen these critters here - Macrodactylus uniformis

Never seen these critters here - Macrodactylus uniformis
Mescalero, Otero County, New Mexico, USA
June 16, 2018
I have never seen these beetles before. There were hundreds of them and most of them mating. Now Mescalero just had a major fire followed by hard rains and flooding. Not sure if these beetles came in with hotshot trucks from other areas or if we do have these in the area and I have just never seen them before.
