It was not until Andre repainted his (http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1301.msg10591#msg10591) that it became clear to me that morphologically it looks like a carrion beetle (Silphidae), although the paint job is nothing like a silphid (at least none I am familiar with). I have this among Silphidae in Bug of the Day.
