This beetle has a very fuzzy exoskeleton! Its pronotum has a distinct downward angle to it.
Was found dead in the house that is in Oak Woodland - Chaparral transitional habitat. There is another dead critter that was attached to it near the head. This species is endemic to Southern California.

Hi Neil, thank you for the comment. It's great to hear from you! I know it's me that's been gone :-)
Such an interesting little fellow. Pity it was dead. Great spotting, Cindy.
