Wow, this is a beautiful beetle, and we agree that it appears to be a Click Beetle in the family Elateridae. We don’t know if we will be able to come up with a species ID as the morning is passing and we must catch a train. We found a match identified as Semiotus sp, but we are having trouble linking to the site. Insect Sale lists it as Semiotus sanguinicollis. The University of South Dakota website confirms that the genus is correct.
