Auger Beetle


I'm thinking this is a Bostrichidae, an Auger Beetle, but I can't find one like this one. The closest is a species of Xylobiops, but not the same….. ( The antennae are really bizarre. About 5 mm long.


Came to an ultraviolet light. Finca Argovia, Ruta de Cafe, Soconusco area of southern Chiapas, Mexico. About 1 hour northeast of Tapachula.
