Omorgus? I am finding alot of these expired, and some living beetles in my rabbits pen, the dead ones are always in the fecal pellets, and blend right in. The living are very near, but not mixed in with the feces.


Omorgus sp.
Sure, the scutellum is diagnostic. Size is also an indicator - bigger than Trox. Good.

Thank you
very much for the help, your illustration in the guide is what made me think it was Omorgus, Thank you again.
