I think this is Nicrophorus tomentosus but not 100% positive. Confirmation or correction appreciated. Thanks.

The mite was all over this beetle.

you're 100% correct
Moved from Sexton Beetles.

Thanks, v.
Thanks for the move and the confirmation. I was fortunate with the shape and coloration. An all black beetle and I'll be stumped. :-)

Fantastic image of one of my favorite beetles (that I have yet to see alive, actually). Keep up the great work.

Thanks Eric!
Wish you could have seen it. Thanks for the compliment.
