Hello, I would like to know what species this group beetle is. As well as it’s diet. https://ibb.co/qk442Lz

INaturalist the All-Knowing says it is Laemostenus complanatus. I would offer it a pre-killed roach and maybe a snail. It reminds me a bit of a Scaphinotus species with its enlongated body, and those are snail-eaters.
