    My guess is a Broad Necked Root Borer except for the raised spots on it's back. The ones I have seen had smooth backs.

    I agree with you. Though those spots were dew drops though?

    I think the spots might be dew drops. But what's the sharp part on the back?

    From everything I've seen those are normal. And this definitely a female too.
