This is a dung beetle belonging to the genus Eurysternus. There are eleven species known to occur in French Guiana, and I can't tell them apart. Our member Meindert has a nice reference collection though (although not of all species), and if you can give an indication of its size, he may be able to give an ID.

Cheers, Auke
