You have a wonderful site. Can you tell me if this iridescent red beetle is a rove beetle and if it can fly? I’m writing a kids book and want to be sure to ID it correctly. Many thanks!

In the interest of properly informing children, who are often the victems of gross misinformation, this is a Dogbane Leaf Beetle, Chrysochus auratus.
