What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Bright red bug, possibly beetle of some sort?
May 17, 2010
Hi there!
I was hiking in the forest today (may 26 2010), it was a hot sunny day, and came accross this pretty little red bug on a log.It had a red body and head with a black slit down the middle, about 4 red legs, and two long black antennas. I thought it might be some sort of beetle but it could also be a flying bug of some sort as well ? Could you please help me out with this 🙂
Thanks! 😀

Golden Netwing Beetle

Hi Marita,
Though your photo is quite blurry, this is surely a Golden Netwing Beetle, Sictyopterus aurora.
