This adult male beetle was found on the grounds of the hotel at the Cola del Caballo resort, south of Monterrey, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Image scanned from 35mm slide. I hope someone can check the species ID for me. I keyed this out from the online keys here:
I found this guy dead on my windowsill. It really caught me off guard how large it was.
Common- too common.

se escuchaba el sonido de decenas de escarabajos debajo de las hojas
I'm not sure if this beetle was attracted to the blacklight I was running or if it just showed up at a porchlight. TL 47mm. This is one strong crawler, hard to hold onto for pictures.
