Found this little guy on some debris in a pond while hunting for frogs, browsed through the guide but didn't see anything similar. Does anyone know the species?

Scarab Beetle? - Copris remotus - male Scarab Beetle? - Copris remotus - male

Moved
Moved from Copris.

looks more like Copris arizon
looks more like Copris arizonensis. Definitely not the rugose stage beetle.

 
You're right
He does look very similar to Copris, I'll see if I can find another one tonight and photograph it from above.

Thanks for the help!

 
Copris remotus remotus
arizonensis does reach western Texas, but not where this was seen.

Not an ID
but looks kind of like Rugose Stag Beetle....Gorgeous shots!
