I found this inects on a magnolia tree.
The beetle was attracted to the oozing sap, caused by parasite scab like insects that were all over the trunk, and the surrounding branches of the magnolia tree.
Thank you Gilma.
I saw a few of this in my Garden when I lived in California. I called them Fig Beetle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figeater_b...
