Found this beauty in my backyard in eastern Virginia in early November. I’ve never seen such a bug, was larger than a nickel but smaller than a quarter. What is it?
It seems like each autumn we get at least a few requests to identify a dinosaur bug or stegosaurus bug, because that is the time that Wheel Bugs like your individual attain maturity and develop the coglike thoracic feature.
