This beetle has been staying with my Hissers for many months. I've seen several over the years but I've never tried to ID it, anybody know?, just something for the beetle peeps.(I know it looks a little like a bess beetle, not one though.)

Looks like Phileurus valgus but where you are could also be Hemiphileurus illatus (both from Phileurini tribe).

OK thanks, looks like valgus to me too after looking at pics, maybe a little longer legs on valgus(?)
