Good day I'm new to the forum. Could somebody perhaps identify this beetle ? Picture not very clear. Looks like it belongs to Omorgus species but unsure which one. It is on predator dung. In South Africa

Welcome to the forum, Hennie 0/*

Our insect specialist is on holiday for the time being, but maybe someone else can help you.

Have you had a look through some of the insect books?

0/* Hennie. Welcome to the forum.

I saw a very similar beetle in Etosha and have yet to ID it. 0*\

Would love to know what it is.

Here is a pic I took. Think it's the same or closely related. :-? -O-
