What kinda bug is this?
Hi,
Curious to what this may be? I think it may be the Ten Lined June Beetle but it doesn’t look like it exactly. We found this at Davy Crockett State Park in Limestone Tennessee this past weekend 7/14/07. It makes a hissing noise when you mess with it. Any info is greatly appreciated! And thank you for your site, it is very interesting. Regards,
April

Hi April,
You are very perceptive. Though this is not a Ten Lined June Beetle, it is in the same genus. This is a Variegated June Beetle, Polyphylla variolosa.
