just posted link to J. Epler's ID manual which includes B&W illus. here:ftp://ftp.dep.state.fl.us/pub/labs/biology/biokeys/beetles.pdf

I also ID'd one A. mediatus via Downie & Arnett (1) last year and I believe it's the only possibility for our local.

 
Thanks Tim
It's good to get a name for this beetle.
