Desert Stink Beetles - Eleodes

Desert Stink Beetles - Eleodes
Chimney Canyon, Coronado NF, SE of Arivaca, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
April 20, 2013
Found under a rock under trees, they soon assumed their defensive position. I don't know if an ID is possible - I often have thought these are Eleodes armatus, but now I realize it's not so simple....Thank you for any input.
