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?

Prionid: Stenodontes chevrolati perhaps

Dear Rob,
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.

Prionid
