iris beetles;not borers

Hi again,
Thank you to everyone who helped with my questions about leaf spot.
After attacking my garden to try to rid it, I have come across a beetle that
ran out of the fans when I pulled the outermost fans away from the rhizome.
It was dark brown-black, had a definite head seperation from the thorax, four
legs from the thorax and two protruding from the posterior abdomin.  It
scattered quickly, but I killed as many as I could.  Does anyone know about
this beetle?  Is it just taking up residence in the iris or does it do damage?
It didn't seem to be damaging anything?
I would appreciate any beetle knowledge.
