Mating Red Net Winged Beetles

Dear ludwigsbestfriend,
What a lovely image of mating Red Net Winged Beetles, Dictyopterus aurora.  You can see additional images on BugGuide.

Dear Daniel,
Wow!  Thanks so much for naming my mystery beetle!  Do you stay up all night answering people’s emails with crazy bug questions?
Regards,
Sally

Hi Sally,
We answer letters when we are able.  We also sleep when we can, but our schedule is sometimes erratic.
