Found this on the back porch behind a broom…dead.
Looks as though it might be a flying beetle.
Interesting pattern on it.

Dear Bugz E,
The corpse you found is that of a Cottonwood Borer, Plectrodera scalator, according to BugGuide. It is in our opinion the most distinctive beetle found in North America north of the Mexican border.
