Wow, that's an interesting beetle! Great find!
This is a very good find. Rain beetles have very localized populations vulnerable to habitat destruction. Females are flightless and live in deep burrows in the soil. They attract males by releasing a scent for the males to follow. They are most active in fall, in pre-dawn hours when it is raining lightly.
