Found this beetle in some logs in Central Florida, being from the U.K. I thought it resembled a Devil’s Coach Horse beetle but I don’t think they are in Florida. What do you reckon?
This is definitely not a Devil’s Coachhorse, a species of Rove Beetle. This is a Stump Borer in the subfamily Prioninae. We believe we have correctly identified it as Stenodontes chevrolati thanks to this BugGuide image.
