Bobby and Will, these do occasionally come up at our shows since they are obtained locally.  I will keep an eye out for you.

I have a had a book called the wonderful World of fossils for about 30years or probably more. I will post some photos of it . It is a great book because it looks at the more unusual fossil for example when looking at La brea Tar pits instead of seeing just Mammoths and sabre toothed tigers it had these little beatles featured too. That is when I but this on my bucket list.

Beautiful beetle! I have some dragonfly heads, which I think are from the same tar pits.
