Another burying beetle

There was another burying beetle in my moth trap last night  – this time an orange and black one.

Nicrophorus species
It has orange tips to its antennae and has two bands of orange markings – I think it is Nicrophorus vespillo but it might be N. interruptus

Anyone care to comment?
