Some type of Beetle - has nice row of reddish-brown indented dots along back. Pretty nice set of chops! Not a small fella.

Moved from Beetles.

Calosoma sayi

Thanks v !
You're all over these guys - with great expertise that is very much appreciated!

(But the Caterpillars in the nearby folder on my computer won't be happy to hear this guy just moved in next to 'em.)
