This is sheen, non-reflective surface of this beetle is nice for flash photography. Would this happen to be a Flat Brown Scavenger Beetle or is that just an artist's perspective?

Cymatothes tristis (Laporte) is recorded from Alabama.

i expected your comment on this one...

very nice addition, Robert -- pls look for more!

not a carrion beetle
looks like a darkling beetle (Tenebrionidae)

Tenebrionidae, sure
must be IDable
