Thank you!
Thank you, Cordelia, for posting your shot (and two additional ones!) from I knew this would be exciting to our scarab experts here:-) You have made a very valuable addition to the guide.

Thank you and everyone for the identification. This is a very interesting web-site. Hope to take more photos to share in the future.

Moved from ID Request.

Not sure what species is/are in TX, offhand.

two species in TX
from locale alone, this could be either B. fossatus [statewide] [female in the guide already] or B. rex [s. TX endemic]. I believe this is B. rex though - the type locale is Corpus Cristi - right near where you got this shot. See Key & Descriptions (pg. 102) for complete details.

Welcome to BugGuide - nice addition.
