I believe this is D. hyllus as opposed to the only other possibility from that area, D. hercules septentrionalis. D. hyllus will average smaller, though there would be overlap in females. If it were a male, it would be far more certain, but I cannot locate too many females of D. h. septentrionalis in photos, nor in "The Beetles of the World". I can say that your specimen appears to be spot-on for a female D. hyllus.
