Can’t Identify Large White and Black Bug
I would love to know what kind of bug this is. It was on the brick on the side of my house this morning (9/24/08). Also, it is very large-close to 2″ long. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Hi Leslie,
Your Ironclad Beetle, Zopherus nodulosus, gets its common name from the impenetrability of its exoskeleton.  Most of our photos of this species are from Texas.
