On oak gall. Appeared to be on gall with a purpose, but couldn't tell if it was actually piercing the gall with its labium.

Description

I set a dead hairy-tailed mole on this mound of sand and peat the day before. The only sign of it today was some disturbed soil and small bits of fur on the surface (and a few flies near the surface). I dug it up and found the mole about 3-4 inches deep with most of the hair removed. I came back an hour or so later and it was being pulled back into the hole and reburied. I caught a brief partial glimpse of a large black beetle with orange spots.
