Hello i noticed this interestingly colored Beetle on the side of my sliding glass door frame near the outdoor light. I have never seen this species before. It has a beautiful floral looking pattern. I have no idea if that is his wing pattern or body color. I did not want to disturb it. It was there in the morning and stayed all day. I’m figuring it is a Nocturnal species. Any help in Identification would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
