It is difficult to tell, but those antennae do not look like the belong to Scarabaeidae. My first instinct would be Carabidae.

Tnx :) now we are one step closer, just another 30 000 species left, since before it was 400 000 in few minutes we removed 92,5 % of species, with that speed we should got the right ID very very soon :P ha ha ha
