Beetle Update

Thanks to, someone has identified the beetle from North Bass Island as a Odontotaenius disjunctus, also known as the horned bess beetle. From what I found "The Internet," these insects actually show some social interactions with adults taking care of their larvae somewhat. They live in dead decaying wood, and I found this specimen crawling and basking on top of a nice dead and decaying log.
