wooly darkling beetle
Eleodes osculans

Do you have a hairy butt? Why, yes, indeed! I once used this question to distinguish between bumble bees (hairy) and carpenter bees (not hairy) in Ohio. Now that I'm looking at my beetle pics, thanks to my new Beetles of California book, I think hairy butt is the best identifier for this stink beetle.
