Black&OrangeBug - Megalodacne heros

Black&OrangeBug - Megalodacne heros
LaPorte/Jongkind Park, LaPorte County, Indiana, USA
July 7, 2011
Size: 7/8" long
Found this bug dead on my sidewalk this morning. A few ants were attacking the body. Don't recall ever seeing one like this around here before and curious what it might be. Looks a bit like some of the milk-weed beetles, but appears too long and slender, or perhaps a Clytrini, but not quite a match for any I've seen photos of.

Thanks so much. That certainly appears to be correct.
