This was seen today, August 22 in central Minnesota near the St. Louis River. The area is rocky, sandy and has a lot of weeds. It was crawling on a rock and in an effort to get a clear picture, accidentally turned it over. The abdomen had black and yellow striped coloring like a wasp. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of that, but did get these two photos. It is heading towards the southeast corner of the picture. It is 1/2 – 3/4″ long.

Dear Squeamish Bug Lover,
This is a Goldenrod Soldier Beetle, and now that summer is approaching its end, fall is almost upon us and the goldenrod is beginning to bloom, we expect submissions of Goldenrod Soldier Beetles to increase.
