Tenebroides crassicornis

Toward the end of last month while collecting  up north by Mariposa, I came by this cool beetle belonging to the family Trogossitidae wandering along a log:

Tenebroides crassicornis (Horn, 1862)

Bark-gnawing beetles have been one of my favorite families ever since I collected the larger and more iridescent genus Temnoscheila at the Coastal Range.
