Can anyone identify this beetle?

Our London correspondent, Helen Jeffries has a question for FFON readers.

Helen has an inordinate fondness for beetles – ‘I like the specimens one can get in see-through blocks,’ she says. ‘I bought the one pictured below as a lucky dip from ebay for a few pounds. I don’t suppose anyone can identify it?’

Helen thinks it’s scarab-esque but that’s as far as she can get and the block is about three inches long.

If you can ID it, please leave a comment below.

Thanks!

Simon
