Description:

Stumbled across this little chap whilst walking the Dorset Coastline. Was found in clifftop farmland and the little chap appeared to be digging/burrowing. I've never seen anything similar before so would love to find out more about him. Looks somewhere between an ant, weevil and beetle.

ID comment

The rear of the pronotum appears straight and not indented, suggesting the Black Oil Beetle.
