I found these beetles under a log today in a park while anting. They seem around 30mm..?

 

In their log, I found a carpenter ant queen, which has me excited.

 

Before I'm asked, no, there were no Prenolepis imparis, only Formica and Camponotus

 

Here are the photos:

I think I'm gonna name him Ringo. After all, this post is making him into a star.
