Hi dr,
Thanks so much for the Rain Beetle photos.  We also believe the LA Time article we read this past May is once again live on the website.  It is a wonderful account of an encounter with Rain Beetles.  One of the chapters in our book has to do with insects and weather, and we are going to be writing about the Rain Beetles of the California Sierras.  Since we only have twelve days to finish the manuscript, we may write that chapter next.

    Daniel and DR , it appears from the angled photo that you have a fine male specimen of Pleocoma staff – Named by Schaufuss 1870 . Cheers ! Gene St. Denis Sierra Nevada Research
