Sandalus Niger - Sandalus niger - female

Sandalus Niger - Sandalus niger - Female
Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, Michigan, USA
September 20, 2010
Size: about .75 in
I found this beetle on the sidewalk around noon. It didn't seem to have any large pincers so it may be a female. It was very friendly when I picked it up, although it didn't move much. It opened it's wings slightly and I saw dull orangeish stripes underneath the wings.
