I call it the phyllis diller beetle
Just came across your site… great information and design!
Thank you. Do you know what this is? It’s pretty big
– about an inch and half long. Found in Joshua Tree,
CA. Thank you!

Hi Nancy and/or Alma,
Though we don’t see the resemblance, we like the idea of this
being called a Phyllis Diller Beetle, but in actuality, it
is a Ten Lined June Beetle.
