Hi jchales

I think this is a Bloody-Nosed Beetle (Timarcha tenebricosa). You can add this as the ID yourself by clicking on 'Edit' and entering the identification information into the designated boxes.

I think Timarcha

I think Timarcha goettingensis is more likely given the that the elytra look quite rough compared to Timarcha tenebricosa and the overall shape appears to be more compact.

Please edit the observation to put this in the invertebrate group (it is currently grouped as "other organism" which is incorrect).

Many thanks, John

P.S. Welcome to iSpot and congratulations on adding what I hope will be the first of many observations to the website :) Lesser/Small bloody-nosed beetle is certainly a very good start!
