Hi again Kristian,
This is some member of the Scarab Beetle family Scarabidae, but we haven’t had any luck with an actual species identification.

Update:  Thanks to Cesar Crash who identified Pantolia flavomarginata.

    I found this similar looking beetle in the genus Anochillia http://insecterra.forumactif.com/t13626-anochilia, but it has some textures I don’t see in this one here. Is this guy dead in the image? One peace of his leg is in the floor.
