Is this a Rain Beetle?
November 18, 2009
Just found in the pool flailing around on top of the water — it looks like the other Rain Beetle pictures on your site and thought I’d ask if that’s what this is to confirm. One picture is on top of the net I got it out of the pool with. The other is on the ground. We had rain last night and everything is still sort of wet around here today. Thanks!

You are absolutely correct. We are happy that our website was helpful with your Rain Beetle identification. This is the second submission of Rain Beetles we are posting from yesterday.
