iridescent beetle with orange legs
July 15, 2010
This beetle was found near San Antonio, Texas. The body was about 1.5 inches long and the antennae were at least that long. The legs were orange and black. Please help identify this beetle. I’ve lived in TX all my life and never saw a beetle like this…except maybe at the zoo.
