Puffball Beetle

 
So that's what it is
I didn't find it on a puffball, it was walking on a dirt path. Thanks Jim.

 
Different from all three spp. I've posted
It looks closest to this sp. I posted last year.

However, the more sparse, shorter setae and the lack of any protruding point on the middle enlarged antennomere tell me it's a different species.

 
different species
It is a different species from the one Jim posted a day or so ago. The second segment of the antennal club is different.
