Found this beetle after a rainstorm in Huntsville, Texas. Is half the size of bessbeetles I have found in the forest. Can anyone verify that it is a bessbeetle? Different species? I can't find an online key to species, most sources say there's only one in Texas. Thanks.

Description from Wikipedia

The family Scarabaeidae as currently defined consists of over 30,000 species of beetles worldwide. The species in this large family are often called scarabs or scarab beetles. The classification of this family is fairly unstable, with numerous competing theories, and new proposals appearing quite often. It is probable that many of the subfamilies listed here will not be recognized very much longer, as they will likely be reduced in status below subfamily rank, or elevated to...
