Coleoptera - Toxonotus cornutus

Coleoptera - Toxonotus cornutus
1.3 miles NW of Camp Wood, Edwards County, Texas, USA
September 19, 2020
Size: apx.4.5 mm long
I found this beetle on my sheet when I went out to turn on my lights for the night, so I don't think it was attracted by light.

The first image is what attracted my attention as something different than I usually see.

I did NOT refrigerate it. It never wanted to move and I had to prod it with a tooth pick to get it to stand up for the second picture.

Genus Conotrachelus?
