Checkered Beetle

Dear huh?,
You encountered a Checkered Beetle in the family Cleridae, and it appears to be
Enoclerus ichneumoneus based on an image we matched on BugGuideThe family page on BugGuide contains this information:  “predaceous on other insects, larvae mostly on wood- and cone-borers; some adults feed on pollen; a few species are scavengers.
