The Beetle and The Ant - Eleodes goryi

The Beetle and The Ant - Eleodes goryi
Clifton, Bosque County, Texas, USA
September 14, 2010
Size: roughly 1in.
I'm assuming some variety of Darkling Beetle, but would like to know the specifics.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Looks like Eleodes goryi
Chuck Triplehorn (et al's) excellent recent review of the Texas Eleodes should place this for certain, but goryi is fairly distinctive.

 
thanks, Bill

Moved from ID Request.

cropping tight could help; must be an Eleodes
