Wondering what kind of Bug this is…
Thanks for offering this service! We found this very strange, cool, Beetle type insect which we’ve never seen before. I haven’t been able to identify him via photos on the web. Do you know what he is? He made a hissing or ‘tsss’… ‘tsssh’ sound each time I disturbed him when I was collecting him ( hoping it wasn’t spraying poison or something at me =) ). I’ve included a photo. It’s sitting on a 50 cent coin for scale. Hopefully he’s harmless as I’ve set him free.
This is a Ten Lined June Beetle, and it is harmless. Gorgeous image by the way.
