I would like to tell you that I found this particular beetle (deceased), in a hallway at the Edmonton International Airport a week ago. It was such a unique beetle in appearance that I memorized it and googled it. I am amazed that it made it this far north! The beetle, as I recall was nearly 2 inches in length, and roughly an inch wide. I am sorry to say I did not keep it, but swept up and thrown away. (I work with food, it would have been improper to keep it. I also didn't have anything to put it in.) Fascinating bug, but still gave me the collywobbles.
I just found one in our yard today in Hinton Alberta. Freaked me right out, but still managed to get a few macro shots of it. Still creeped out ;S
