It looks like it might be Rhanidea unicolor. Any help would be great.

Please note species. I just found one yesterday.

for finding the ID on this beetle, Jim.

Looks like yours has some eggs hanging on it too.

I didn't even notice
but now I do see something on it's leg and on the elytra.

right family, but ...
Rhanidea unicolor - see also here - probably not it, but closer ...

Handsome Fungus Beetle
I agree, it's close, but not quite close enough to be either species. I'll place it by family. Thanks for the help Phillip.
